This morning whilst working on the pavement of a property in Victoria Road, a gardener was approached by two suspects who demanded information regarding the homeowners and their possessions. One suspect proceeded to grab the gardener and threaten him when he refused to provide any information. At this point a security guard came outside and noticed the incident in progress and he immediately pressed his panic button.
CAP Tactical Units were dispatched and upon their swift arrival gathered information on the suspects. With a description of the perps in hand, the tactical officers proceeded to search the area. A short distance away, the Tactical Unit discovered two individuals matching the description of the suspects and apprehended them. The suspects were subsequently handed over to SAPS. A fake firearm was recovered on scene.
Well done to all involved!
