Weekend success – two suspects apprehended!
Adrienne Street – Sandown
In the early hours of Monday morning, three suspects breached the premises by climbing over a back wall and gained entry into a residence through a side door. The suspects then made contact with the victims and proceeded to tie them up and stole various valuables. One of the victims then managed to break free of his restraints and activated the alarm alerting CAP's Command Centre.
Noticing the arrival of Tactical Officers on the scene, the suspects attempted to flee. CAPs Command Centre dispatched further vehicles to the scene as well as alerted Sandton SAPS. The chase
ensued after the suspects, Tactical Officers, in hot pursuit quickly closed in on the suspects.
Tactical Officers apprehended two of the suspects; one on Middle Road and together with Sandton SAPS, the second suspect was caught on Rivonia Road. The two suspects were handed over to Sandton SAPS for further investigation. The stolen valuables were also recovered from the scene.
During this incident, one of the victims was injured. We wish to extend our sympathies to the injured victim and hope he has a full and speedy recovery.
Well done to all involved!
