Holland American Line Passengers Robbed - Bus Full Of Passengers Robbed On Excursion - Solomon Islands - March 9, 2008

A bus load of cruise ship passenges robbed by an armed bandit, this time in the Solomon Islands.

The 12 passengers had just left Holland America Line cruise ship Statendam that docked at Point Cruz for a tour of World War II sites.

The bus full of cruise ship passengers was stopped by a man wearing a mask on its return from Bloody Ridge.

The masked man allegedly stopped the bus by placing a huge coconut log across the road, stopping the bus on the road, then robbed some of the tourists.
Police claim to have arrested a suspect, but offered no public photographs or suspect name.

At the time of this story the current FBI data base for crimes against Americans on cruise ships and during cruise ship excursions only show only one victim in this case, a woman who says she was robbed of $40.
