During routine patrols in Walmer Estate this morning, police arrested a 35 year old man for attempted housebreaking in the area.

Police acted on information they received from a resident who notified them of a housebreaking in progress.

Upon arrival of police, the suspect attempted to flee on foot, but was arrested shortly thereafter.

“During a search of the suspect, the police confiscated a screwdriver and a torch in his possession,” said Sergeant Hilton Malila.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect tried to force the kitchen window open.

The suspect will appear at the Cape Town Magistrates’ court tomorrow on a charge of attempted housebreaking and theft.
