SAPS arrested two suspects,aged 31 and 35 years old, following an intense investigation where police members were implicated in an armed robbery and kidnapping incident in Salt River on Monday night.

“The two arrested suspects are both constables and were stationed at the Western Cape Flying Squad Unit in Pinelands.

“Police are still pursuing leads to arrest the other outstanding suspects,” said SAPS spokesperson Sergeant Hilton Malila.

It is alleged that six police members entered a shop in Salt River late Monday evening, claiming they were looking for drugs.

They robbed the store of cigarettes and airtime vouchers worth more than R10 000.

The shop owner and his assistant allege they were assaulted after which they dropped off in Langa.

The suspects will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate Court on Friday.

They face charges of business robbery and kidnapping.
