The Western Cape MEC of Community Safety Dan Plato has commended the action of a member of the public who identified one of the suspects involved with the robberies in Canal Walk, and reported it. 

In a statement MEC Plato said the suspect was identified after security was alerted and he was then apprehended and detained until police arrived. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Ewald Botha said MEC Plato stated that this quick thinking recognising the need to perform a civic duty and approaching the relevant authorities has led to an arrest, which will now hopefully lead to more information being retrieved by the police.

Botha said the MEC has urged the broader public to follow this excellent example of being safety conscious and working with security, law enforcement and the police in creating safer environments in our province.

“This arrest serves as a warning to suspects and would-be criminals that the SAPS and the provincial government stand united against crime in the province” Botha added.
