This morning to day police arrested a suspect in Main road, Observatory after a high speed chase that ended in Station road, Mowbray.

The arrest follows after police members on routine patrol in Observatory noticed a black Alfa Romeo vehicle speeding down Victoria road in the direction of Mowbray.

Seargent Hilton Malila says we pursued and stopped the vehicle in Station road, Mowbray.

“As Police members approached the vehicle, one of the occupants jumped out and ran down one of the side streets. The registration number of the vehicle was tested that indicated that it was not registered to an owner’ says Malila.

‘The police then brought the suspect in for questioning at the Woodstock police station.’’

“A complainant identified the suspect as one of the persons who robbed him earlier this morning at an ATM. in Durham Avenue, Salt River.

While the complainant was busy withdrawing money, he was approached by an man offering assistance. The man allegedly swopped his bank card and fled in a black Alfa Romeo vehicle.

The suspects then withdraw an amount of R3000-00 from the complainant's account. Says Malila.

The 35 years old suspect is expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate court tomorrow on charges of Fraud and Theft.
