Guanajuato, Mex - Attack in Pastita

Here is a perfect reason why I rant and rave over Gringo visitors walking late at night around Guanajuato:

A woman was attacked, beaten, and robbed in front of the Commission Federal de Electricidad building at 22:20 at night on Saturday. She was robbed of about 4 thousand pesos and various items she was carrying in her purse.

Her minor daughter ran to the police kiosk in on the Pastita street to get help.

The culprit was not caught.

Gringo tourist, especially Americans, tend to want to be able to walk back to their hotels, B & B's, or house rental in the dark. They reason Guanajuato cannot have crime, that it cannot be like back home.

Don't do it. Take a cab!
