- The Maldives is not FULL of perverts & muggers as you suggest.
I am horrified that you think it is. However, do not walk along the street with expensive jewellery, flashy watches, necklaces etc., that only attracts trouble. Unfortunately many Asian countries are as you described, I live in Asia and am alone, female and middle aged and manage to take care of myself. Yes you get hassle from youngsters, but give them a firm 'Go away' do not make eye contact or engage in conversation, walk away at a pace not stroll away. At night always stay in lit public places, don't go out on your own.
Keep valuables locked in a safe within your hotel.
Just a little common sense will keep you safe.

- Unfortunately Maldivians find it acceptable to allow sexual assaults on women and children. In fact here you would get more jail time for drinking Alcohol than rape.
I do not allow my wife and children to walk alone in Male especially at night and I agree with you that some young Maldivian men will grab your womens butt and breasts. I would advise against getting angry at them because as you would know most of these kind of people carry box cutter knives and will not hesitate to use them on you.
