    I have heard that that was 2  attacks that night,the one reported,and then here was 1  not reported by the police. Two girl’s an hour before ,had a more harrowing experience .They were walking down 7mb next to St.Mattews’and 2 guy’s came from opposite directions on bikes and clotheslined one of the girls with his arm completely knocking her on the ground ,attempted to take her purse,which she never gave up,he proceeded to punch her to get the purse ,until the the other girl knocked him off his bike and chased him off.he left his bike,the second guy attacked the girl and stole her purse.and ran off.Yes the police have his bike and they have swabs of  under the girl’s fingernails/after scratching him.No report of any of this in the police report.Just wondering if if this is kept  under wraps as no to upset the tourists?
