Re: Assaults in Todos Santos - In response to a number of Reader questions and concerns about an anonymously-submitted post that was reprinted in last Wednesday's edition of the Baja Western Onion warning about assaults in Todos Santos, here is more information from the person who posted the article:
  • One of the victims, known to the poster, was the source of the information. There were reportedly three assaults, one within the last month and two others before that (dates and times unknown), one downtown and two others in "El Otro Lado" north of town, during both darkness and daylight hours.
  • One assault reportedly involved multiple assailants. It is unknown if alcohol or drugs were involved in any of the incidents, nor was there mention of weapons.
  • One assault was reported to the police as an attempted rape. At least one of the other two incidents apparently had robbery as a motive. The poster did not know what, if anything, was taken or whether the other incidents were reported to the police. According to the poster, neither the poster nor the women involved wish to be identified for fear of retribution or community pressure to keep quiet about the incidents.
As always, all citizens are urged to use caution and good judgement whan considering walking alone or at night in Todos Santos, just as you should anywhere. Persons wishing more information, or who witness suspicious activities, or who are victims of a crime are encouraged to contact the Todos Santos police: Policia Preventiva/Todos Santos Police, 612 145-1052, Commandante Navarro, or Ministero Publico/State Police, 612 145 0198, Commandante Erigoyen. - Editor, The Baja Western Onion The Baja Western Onion
