Quick arrests after robbery

Vigilant police officers arrested four suspects in connection with a house robbery, moments after arriving at the scene of the crime in Onrus.

Hermanus Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Calvin Duncan says an elderly man sustained serious injuries to his arm during the robbery that occurred at approximately 22:45 on Wednesday 26 June.

“Three elderly visitors from Cape Town locked the doors and windows before they went to sleep. At 22:45, the man who was asleep next to his wife, was woken up by a light shining in his eyes. He discovered an unknown man next to his bed,” Duncan reported.

The elderly man sustained serious injuries to his arm during a brief struggle with the intruder. The robbers made off with various items of electronic equipment.

“While the police were on the scene in Green Street, the members noticed a person walking across the street not far from the scene.

“After further investigation Sergeants CH Jooste and M Mjonose, together with constables NP Tchouamo and A Booi, arrested four suspects hiding in the bushes. They also recovered the stolen items and confiscated a vehicle which is believed to have been used to transport the stolen property,” said Duncan.

He added that neighbourhood watch and ADT security officers assisted the police during the arrests.

“Another suspect was later arrested in Zwelihle. The five suspects appeared in the Hermanus Magistrates’ Court on Monday 1 July on a charge of house robbery,” said Duncan.
