Police recover U.S. visitor’s goods

A teen and an adult companion have been detained on allegations that they held up a U.S. woman tourist in Playa Hermosa, Jacó, about 8 p.m. Monday.

The woman told police that two men pulled a knife on her and took $300 and a cell phone, the Fuerza Pública said. The woman told police that the pair fled on a scooter, which police were able to spot a few minutes later.

The teen is 17, officers said.

The pair were remanded to the flagrancy prosecutor.
