YOUTHS ARRESTED FOR ROBBERY
TABLE VIEW – Two youths, aged 15 and 19 were arrested after they had robbed a woman at knife point on Sunday morning.
Shortly after 06:00 the victim stepped out of a taxi at the corners of Jansen- and Blaauberg Road in Table View when she was followed by the duo. She realised she was being followed and started to run. The youths chased her, threatened her with a knife and she threw her handbag at them.
A passer-by saw what had transpired and picked up the victim. They started to look for the suspects and caught one of them. Table View Police were summoned and a search for the second suspect started.
The first suspect pointed out his accomplice who was seen running. Police apprehended and arrested him.
Both suspects were taken to the police station where they were charged with robbery.
Table View Station Commander, Colonel Lindiwe Dyantyi expressed her gratitude towards the good samaritan who came to the aid of the woman and made the effort to search for the suspects.
