Joint Operation apprehends three suspects following a robbery along the lower Signal Hill vicinity today.
According to our Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) Section Ranger: “A group of 10 hikers were heard screaming for help on the Signal Hill jeep track today around 12H30pm. One of the hikers amongst the group was robbed of their belongings. Three male suspects were identified and rangers were alerted and immediately deployed.
Rangers on duty along the Noon Gun, Signal Hill, and the TMNP Tactical Response Team from the northern section, were mobilized and managed to cover the area with help of the South African Police Service (SAPS).
Table Mountain Aerial Cable Way introduced surveillance cameras on Signal Hill and Devils Peak for monitoring purposes, and in this incident assisted in tracking the movements of the suspects which resulted in a speedy apprehension.
Suspects were handed to SAPS for further questioning. Following inspection of the area, we ceased items which included a Silver butcher knife.”
Well done SANParks Table Mountain National Park rangers, TMAC and SAPS.
