During routine patrols today, two of our alert response officers noticed an unknown male jumping over a wall in the vicinity of Helderberg College Road.
The suspect was pursued and apprehended.
Witnesses in the vicinity approached our response officers and informed them that the suspect had begged money from a young lady and when she refused, a knife was produced and she was instructed to hand over her cell phone.
The arrival of Response Officers Kopeshe and Lester in the vicinity resulted in the suspect abandoning his attepmt to rob the young lady and flee from the scene.
The SAPS were summoned and the suspect was arrested.
WELL DONE TO RESPONSE OFFICERS KOPESHE AND LESTER
