A suspect was arrested by police on Saturday evening (2 March 2019) in connection with an alleged robbery in Llandudno.
“One of our armed response officers responded to a report that two people had been robbed in the area, late on Saturday evening,” explains Mr Jade Hanning, Cape Town South district manager at Fidelity ADT. “The officer made his way to the security hut at the entrance to Llandudno to meet the two victims.”
They indicated to the armed response officer where the alleged suspects had fled to. After requesting backup, the officer started his search for the suspects.
“He soon located one of the alleged suspects where he was hiding behind a bush, and subdued him when the suspect became aggressive. One of the robbery victims positively identified the suspect,” says Hanning.
The SAPS was called to the scene and the suspect was taken into custody.
“Well done to our officer for his quick response in this case,” says Hanning.
