An Australian tourist was stabbed in Buenos Aires while jogging close to the Law School in the posh neighbourhood of La Recoleta. Apparently he was attacked by a lonely delinquent with the intention of robbing his belongings and cellular phone.

Bulmer and his wife arrived in Buenos Aires on Saturday and were scheduled to board a cruise vessel to the south of Argentina and Antarctica on Sunday.

The wife and a group of friends who were planning to take the cruise decided to remain waiting for the recovery of Terence. He has the support from the Argentine Tourism Ombudsman and staff from the Australian embassy.
Only a month ago, December 14, a British tourist Matthew Gibbard and his son in law Stefan Zone were attacked at the entrance of their hotel in another posh district of Buenos Aires, Puerto Madero. Mr. Gibbard was killed and Stefan seriously injured from gun shots.
The criminal investigation finally gave with the killers, apparently exiled Venezuelans, who working in combination with Argentine gang members selected tourists at the Ezeiza airport to whom they offered transport service to Buenos Aires. At the arrival of the hotel robbers in a motor cycle were waiting for them, while allegedly the local police had cleared the area, so they could escape after committing their crimes. .
