Yesterday evening at least one suspect arrived in a silver Hyundai and used a fake firearm to hold a victim up on Darwin Avenue in Savoy Estate. Various valuables, including the victim’s phone, was taken followed by the suspects leaving towards Aintree Avenue.
The victim alerted another resident in the area who then contacted CAP’s Command Centre. Tactical Vehicles were immediately dispatched along with CAP’s (SIU) Special Intervention Unit. The stolen phone was able to be tracked which led to several units being able to respond to the last known location, 7th Street corner 4th Avenue in Killarney.
On arrival, the tactical team identified the suspect motor vehicle and quickly detained the two occupants inside. The fake firearm and stolen valuables were also recovered. Both suspects were later handed over to SAPS along with all recovered items and the suspect motor vehicle.
Well done to all involved!
