Journalist robbed in Mitchell Plain
A Media 24 parliamentary reporter has been robbed while covering the voter registration drive in Mitchels”s Plain. Jan Gerber says he was leaving the registration venue for his car when the incident happened. Gerber says he was a little shaken but then went to the nearest police station to open a case of robbery. He says he is more upset over the pictures he lost: “ As I got to my car two men approached me and grabbed the camera strap; as I resisted, they tried to pull my camera and one of them pulled out a knife. I decided it’s probably a good time to stop fighting. I think the one guy cut the strap of the camera and then they went.”
Please be on a lookout for anyone trying to sell a professional camera, and report your nearest police station or a Gangwatch admin.
