Two suspects arrested after robbing a taxi driver and passenger in Elsies River.

Two suspects were arrested on Saturday night, shortly after they robbed a taxi driver and passenger in 35th Avenue in Elsies River.

The police’s Noloyiso Rwexana said the driver was driving in Halt Street when he stopped to pick up passengers. Three male passengers got into the taxi and when inside the taxi, one passenger pulled out a firearm and threatened the driver. The suspects then robbed the driver of cash and a passenger. They then alighted the taxi and ran away.

''The victims flagged a police van that was on patrol in the area and informed them of the armed robbery. Police followed up on the matter and one suspect was arrested in possession of a special revolver and the second suspect was arrested hiding in another yard,'' Rwexana added.

A victim, who asked not to be named, told Bush Radio News that one of the passengers alerted her that the suspects who boarded the taxi looked ''dodgy''. She then proceeded by hiding her valuables. The victims explained that a female passenger was smacked after she allegedly refused to hand over her belongings. ''The woman refused to give her bag, and they then snatched the bag from her. They also smacked the poor woman, who asked me to help her, but I was too afraid as to what they would do to me.''
