Detectives from the Ivory Park SAPS have this past weekend arrested two suspects for their alleged involvement in a robbery which took place in Kaalfontein late last month.

“The two suspects, aged 20 and 29, are alleged to have robbed a local man his cellphone, cap and a jacket on 28 December 2021 at about 23h00 in Kaalfontein. What the four suspects did not pay attention to was that the victim was already familiar with them as they were from the same area of Kaalfontein, where the robbery took place as well.” said Captain Ben Matimulane, the spokesperson of the Ivory Park SAPS.

The Acting Station Commander of the Ivory Park SAPS, Colonel Baba Mpotoane, has thanked the detectives involved for continuing to keep in touch with the victim, guiding him as to what he should do should he see the suspects.

The open communication paid off on Friday when the first suspect was picked up in Kaalfontein on Friday, followed shortly afterwards by the second arrest on Sunday.

“We would have loved to get hold of the firearm used, but we are still satisfied that the two are being made to come and account for the rogue and criminal behaviour,”said Colonel Mpotoane.

“If the two outstanding suspects know what is good for them they should just hand themselves into our custody because we are not resting until they are brought to account as well,” added Colonel Mpotoane.

The two were taken to the Tembisa Magistrate’s Court where their accountability journey in the form of a trial will commence.
