Six arrested after chain store rampage

By Chanel September

Six people believed to be striking workers were arrested on Friday after they allegedly damaged and stole items from a chain store in Fish Hoek on Wednesday.

Spokesperson Inspector Bernadine Steyn told Independent Online that a man in his 60s was injured when a group of about 50 people believed to be striking workers assaulted staff and members of the public at the store.

The injured man was hit by a stone on his head and was taken to a nearby hospital where he was in a stable condition.

The arrested five men and a woman from Khayelitsha were aged between 17 and 32.

The suspects are to appear in the Simonstown Magistrate's Court on charges of public violence, malicious damage to property and theft.
