A crime warning issued by the U.S. Embassy in the Bahamas has singled out operators of personal watercraft or jet skis. The embassy issued the alert following the sexual assault of a U.S. citizen by a man on one of the watercraft on Cabbage Beach. The Royal Bahamas Police Force says a 26-year-old man was taken into custody as a suspect in the Jan. 2 attack. The embassy says there have been five sexual assaults of U.S. citizens by jet-ski operators in Nassau since July. The embassy banned its staff from using jet-ski rental companies because of insufficient regulation. It recommends U.S. citizens not use them either.
