Attempted Burglary – Somerset West
Just before 2pm today a resident from Somerset Park in Bridgewater noticed his neighbour’s garage door was slightly open. On closer inspection he noticed a coloured male coming out of the garage. He approached the intruder who tried to stab him with a screw driver. The burglar ran and jumped over the complex wall.
Residents called it in to the Bridgewater Neighbourhood Watch BWNW who quickly responded with patrollers sweeping the area together withHELDERBERG CRIME WATCH patrol vehicles.
The suspect could not be found this time but knows now that Bridgewater is no longer an easy target.
The burglar had removed the car batteries from 2 vehicles in the complex, broke into one of the garages and had packed two bags full of powertools. Thanks to the vigilant neighbours and team work from BWNW and HCW, the burglar got away with nothing.
SAPS arrived on scene and a CAS was opened. Well done to all involved. Great team effort.
