A day for netting in robbers

Three suspects were arrested on Thursday night (23 July) shortly after allegedly using an imitation firearm to rob a resident at a local block of flats in Stellenbosch.

“One of our armed-response officers received a message on a community alert platform indicating the resident at Lavanda Flats had been robbed of a quantity of wine by three armed suspects,” said Verena Hulme, Cape Town North District Manager at Fidelity ADT.

“When he arrived at the address, the resident gave a description of the suspects and explained they had fled in the direction of a nearby filling station.”

This information was shared with police and law enforcement partners.

“It didn’t take long for our officer to locate a vehicle matching the description given earlier. With the assistance of the police, the vehicle was stopped on Andringa Street and the occupants were detained,” Hulme said. “An imitation firearm, a knife and the wine was found in the car.”

Meanwhile, earlier that same day in a separate incident two suspects were apprehended after they allegedly robbed an unidentified man while he was in the midst of a medical emergency.

“We received a report that the man was having a seizure on the corner of Bird and Plein Street around 01:30,” Hulme said.

“It was then also reported two suspects had allegedly tried to rob the man while he was in distress.”

Armed response was able to get to the scene and apprehend the two suspects, and the stolen property was recovered in the process.
