IVORY PARK –DETECTIVES from the Ivory Park SAPS have arrested two suspects for their alleged involvement in a robbery in Kaalfontein late last month. The two suspects, aged 20 and 29, allegedly robbed a local man of his cellphone, cap, and jacket on 28 December 2021 at about 23h00 in Kaalfontein. The four suspects did not pay attention to the fact that the victim was already familiar with them as they were from the same area of Kaalfontein where the robbery took place.
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 on 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 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 suspects were taken to the Tembisa Magistrate’s Court, where their accountability journey in the form of a trial will commence.
