Yesterday afternoon, police arrest four males aged 21 yrs and 26 yrs old in an incident that occurred at E Section, Khayelitsha. Police were busy with their routine patrols when they spotted a speedy red Mazda.
They immediately stopped the vehicle, the five males in the car fled on foot and the police gave chase. Police managed to apprehend four suspects and requested to search them. While searching they found a box full of jewelry valued at R300 000.00, said Inspector Siphokazi Mawisa.
“While police were chasing the suspects shots were fired wounding a 24 yr old male in his stomach. He was taken to the nearest hospital and he is in a stable condition and under the police guard.”
A case of attempted murder has been registered against the police for investigation, added Inspector Mawisa.
“On further investigation police found that the incident occurred in a jewelry shop at Somerset West and a case of business robbery was opened.”
The four suspects will appear at Strand Magistrate Court today on charges of possession of suspected stolen goods and robbery.
