There has been an arrest in the March 6 murder of the gay man here:
A 17-year-old youth has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Polish man in an Amsterdam park at the beginning of March. The victim died of his injuries after being stabbed in what police say appears to be a robbery gone wrong. The killing caused an outcry at the time because it took place in part of the Oosterpark known as a gay cruising zone...

...Detectives are also appealing for gay men who have been robbed or attacked in the Oosterpark to come forward as possible witnesses.

Heads Up!
There was a stabbing here near the museum the night of Friday, March 6, 2017.

'A stabbing incident that led to the death of a 33-year-old Eastern European man in Amsterdam's Oosterpark on Friday, has led to more attention for muggings in this known meeting place for gay men. According to Ellie Lust of the Amsterdam police's LGBT team, there have been a series of incidents in the park in recent months, Het Parool reports.

"There have been several robberies", Lust said to the newspaper. "These men are a vulnerable target group because it often involves men who don't openly live a homosexual life. Then you can't just go to the police. This is a bit like crawling into the minds of the perpetrators, but maybe they look for that in their victims." '

I am adding a Heads Up because this was a murder and there have been other incidents. Having said that, there are parks in Amsterdam where public sex is legal but has norms, i.e., no littering, in evenings and nighttime, away from the playground, etc. This deserves an alert due to the crime danger. ~ Editor

Middle Eastern guys here are actually mostly Moroccan homophobic juveniles who like to beat up or rob gays too, so be very careful!

Hit-or-miss, but when you hit it's awesome. Some Middle Eastern guys visit as well as the Dutch. Lots of discreet places to suck and fuck and I've gone back to a couple of guys apartments, too.

No doubt there is cruising action here. I found the crowd to be a bit older, but this may have been attributed to the cooler weather keeping away the younger types. The park is worth a visit.

This is a great park for crusing day and night. It's busy till early hours of the morning and it's safe. There's no shortage of guys willing to play.
