SUSPECT ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTING TO BREAK INTO A HOUSE
TABLE VIEW – Whilst busy in his study on Wednesday, 15 May 2019 in the afternoon, a home owner found an unknown man looking through his window. When asked what he was doing on his property the unknown man walked to a door trying to get into the house, but fortunately it was locked. When the suspected burglar realised his efforts are not going to pay off, he jumped over the wall into another property in Hawks Crescent.
The owner of the property in which the suspect jumped, saw him and contacted an armed response company, who responded swiftly and apprehended the suspect inside a property in Hawks Crescent.
Table View Police was contacted and the suspect was handed over to them. He was identified as a well known burglar, who police arrested previously for housebreaking. He was recently released from prison.
The 31-year-old suspect will appear in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on a charge of attempted housebreaking.
The Table View Station Commander, Colonel Lindiwe Dyantyi has welcomed the arrest and has expressed her gratitude towards the community and the armed response partner for their assistance in the apprehension of this known criminal.
