Goodwood SAPS have taken two suspects into custody, in connection with an armed robbery earlier this week. “One of our armed response officers was on patrol on Tuesday evening when a member of the public stopped him and told him of an armed robbery in progress at a convenience store on the corner of Vasco and Milton Roads,” explains Verena Hulme, Cape Town North district manager at Fidelity ADT. “Our officer immediately rushed to the store where he was able to apprehend one of the alleged robbers, who was armed with a toy firearm. Suspected stolen goods were found in his possession,” she says.
Members of the SAPS soon arrived on the scene to take the suspect into custody, while one of his alleged accomplices was also arrested nearby. Two further suspects managed to evade arrest.
