Well done to Patrol Officer Edward
ARREST: COMMON ROBBERY
2nd Street Gustrow Gordon’s Bay
You can run, but sooner or later,you run out of places to run to!
Bet this guy who snatched a handbag from a nurse on her way to work on Wednesday morning @ 07:50 was asking himself the following: ” Why is it when you want the ground to swallow you whole, it decides to stop trying?”
Members from SAPS Gordon’s Bay were in pursuit of the suspect, who was on foot ,jumping over boundary walls and fences seperating premises in the vicinity of 2nd street.
Response Officer Edward who happened to be in the vicinity, was requested to assist the SAPS members who were in pursuit.
Armed with a detailed description of the fleeing suspect, RO Edward followed the trail and detected the suspect, lying flat on his stomach on the ground in a nearby property, trying to make himself one with the ground on which he was lying.
Response Officer Edward cornered and apprehended the suspect and he was taken into custody by the SAPS members who had also been hot on the heels of the suspect.
Well done to Response Officer Edward and the SAPS members who were determined not to let this one get away.
