Police on Monday 9 December 2019, during lunch time, rearrested four suspects who escaped after appearing in the Johannesburg High Court on different cases.

One of the suspects was fatally shot, two others seriously wounded, one in police custody, and the fifth one at large. The four were apprehended before they could exit the court building.

The circumstances surrounding the escape are still sketchy as police are on the scene with other role players, piecing together information. This includes the verification and confirmation of the identities of the suspects. Details of the fifth suspect who is at large will be circulated pending confirmation.

At this stage, preliminary information suggests that the suspects were armed with knives as two police members were stabbed.

One member was rushed to hospital with serious injuries.
