City firefighter robbed at gunpoint

A City of Cape Town firefighter was threatened with a gun and robbed of a portable radio, whilst attending to a fire call in Khayelitsha on Friday night.

Lansdowne Road Fire crews were busy attending to an informal structure fire in Bangiso Street, in Victoria Mxgene, when the driver of the fire engine was approached by a man who pointed at him and robbed him of a portable radio.

The crew extinguished the fire and then made their way to the nearest police station to lay charges.

The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith has condemned the incident.

“These deplorable actions are the work of cowards who show no consideration for their neighbours or the men and women who put their lives on the line fighting fires. These crimes cannot be tolerated’’

Smith urged residents to come forward with information on the perpetrators.
