On Monday, Western Cape Muizenberg Police arrested eight suspects for robbery. It is believed that a pizza delivery person was held up at gun point in Midmar Road Sheraton Park, after a pizza was ordered from a local pizza shop in Tokai.

Police Spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk says “The 23 year old victim was robbed of pizzas, an undisclosed amount of cash, a cellular telephone and his delivery scooter.”

He however managed to escape and a local resident gave him a lift back to the pizza store.

The motorbike, which was fitted with a tracking device, was traced to Avenue La Brenton in Coniston Park.

He says “Muizenberg SAPS members swiftly responded and assisted the complainant by proceeding to the address, where they recovered the stolen motorbike and arrested eight persons for the possession thereof.”

The suspects, three females aged 28, 30 and 37 respectively and five males aged between 25 and 68, were arrested and detained at Muizenberg SAPS on charges of robbery and possession of stolen property. He added.

The suspects are due to appear in court soon.
