20 June 2007
Police arrested five males from Gugulethu this afternoon for armed robbery after their White BMW crashed into a State vehicle. The arrest follows an incident that took place in a business place at Voortrekker Road, Goodwood.
“The BMW collided with the police vehicle at Corner of Paarl and Dingle Roads after the victim closely followed them.” says Mawisa.
The suspects then jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot while shooting back at the police, but nobody was confirmed injured during the incident.
“During the arrest police confiscated two illegal firearms, as well cash that was stolen during the robbery.” says Mawisa.
All suspects are facing charges of Armed Robbery, possession of illegal firearms, Attempted Murder and Reckless and Negligent Driving. They will appear at the Goodwood Magistrates Court on Friday.
