Cancun, Q.R. – A Canadian tourist suffered a double misdeed when he became a victim of crime not once, but twice, in Cancun’s Hotel Zone.
On Friday night, the tourist identified as G.T. said he was heading toward Hotel Antillano in the city’s center around 6:00 p.m. when he was stopped by a transvestite and offered sexual services in the Hotel Zone. When he refused, the man, who was dressed as a woman, struck him and tried to rob him.
He eventually saw a municipal police patrol vehicle which he hailed and asked for help. Instead of being offered support, he was handcuffed by police and robbed of the $120 they found along with this watch.
When the municipal police left him, he continued walking and eventually saw a Gendarmerie Federal Police unit. When he explained what happened, they took him to the Deputy State Attorney’s Office to begin file proceedings. On Saturday morning, the Canadian tourist was accompanied by federal agents to the Public Prosecutor’s Office to lodge an official complaint.
