Two suspects arrested in Table View

A Resident alerted the Table View police of a suspicious white BMW with 5 men, tailing a cash in transit vehicle. Once the police arrived, the BMW fled and police pursued.
“On the corner of Porterfield Road and the N7, the vehicle stopped and three suspects emerged. One of the men shot at police. Police returned fire and shortly after, two men were arrested,” said Superintendent André Traut.

A suspected stolen 9 mm firearm without a serial number was seized during the arrest and the BMW was reported stolen in the Bellville area earlier this month. The arrested males are detained on a charge of attempted murder and the possession of an illegal firearm and will appear in the Cape Town Magistrates court early next week. The two men arrested come from Du Noon and Khayalitsha.

One man managed to get away on foot, while the other two men escaped in the BMW.

“We have reason to believe that the men attempted to hi-jack the cash in-transit vehicle, but their actions were foiled by the swift actions of the ploice."
