The two police constables, who were shot and wounded in Bothasig on Sunday morning, are both recovering in Milnerton Medi-Clinic.
The two SAPS constables, 24-year-old Johnathan Kriel and 21-year-old Fadwa Brown were on a routine patrol in the area when they approached two suspicious looking suspects. The suspects opened fire, shot the constables and then fled the scene.
Police spokesperson Superintendent Andre Traut says that police investigations are ongoing.
“Both members are in a critical condition in hospital.
No one has been arrested. We are following our leads and we won’t stop our determination to apprehend the perpetrators,” said Traut.
“There are no new developments as yet,” he said.
