ARREST & RECOVERY: ARMED ROBBERY – Phillipi
On Wednesday 12th September 2018 @ approximately 13:00 our Strike Team was busy with duties in the Phillipi area.
Our vigilant Nyala driver, Roger, observed suspicious activity and realised that two occupants of a vehicle parked in the vicinity of the Phillipi Mall were being held at gun point by a group of 4 males.
The Vetus Schola strike team, under the command of Asalaam Kafaar, sprung into action and in the blink of an eye managed to foil the robbery, affect one arrest and recovered the stolen goods.
The suspects had observed the victim and his pregnant passenger withdraw R1000.00 cash from an ATM and followed them to their vehicle where they proceeded to rob the vehicle occupants at gun point.
SAPS Philipi East were contacted and the suspect was handed over to them and placed under arrest.
More arrests are imminent.
Congratulations and thank you to the Vetus Schola Strike Team members Romeo Blignaut and Gcobani Ningiza for successfully arresting the suspect and to Asalaam Kafaar and his team for assisting and providing back-up.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IN THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE THE FEATURES AND CLOTHING OF THE ACCUSED HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY CONCEALED AS THIS IS AN ONGOING POLICE INVESTIGATION.
