MONITOR NET OFFICER CATCHES THREE ROBBERS IN MNANDI
On the 19th of February 2014 at around 12 noon while driving on Constantia Road in Mnandi, Monitor Net response officer Nico Chrisostomou noticed three suspicious persons running over the highway. One person was carrying a sawed off rifle and another had a small red bag in his hand.
Officer Chrisostomou was stopped by a member of the community and this person informed him that the suspects just robbed a “spaza” shop in Olievenhoutbosch extension 37.
The officer gave chase and managed to apprehend two of the suspects, one with the rifle and the other with the red bag in his possession. The third suspect was also arrested a short while later in a plot surrounded by electric fencing.
The rifle and the red bag with money and cell phone airtime were recovered from the suspects. The SAPS took the suspects into custody and took them away.
