Housebreaking and Attempted Murder Suspects Arrested

South African Police Services

Community and police were like bloodhounds tracking suspects

Benoni SAPS members arrested two suspects for housebreaking and attempted murder this morning.

A lookout was given of a white Polo, that was possibly linked to a hijacking, with three occupants wearing red jackets. The vehicle was spotted in Rynfield Benoni driving at a high speed. Benoni SAPS members together with CPF members gave chase. They chased them from Rynfield to Crystal Park back and forth and took the N12 off-ramp towards Johannesburg. The suspects fired two shots, and members returned fire. Their vehicle collided with another vehicle and the suspect started running. Members managed to apprehend two of the suspects, and the third suspects are still at large. A bag with housebreaking implements was found inside the vehicle.

The two arrested suspects were shot and wounded and are under police guard in hospital. The third suspect managed to flee on foot. They will be charged with attempted murder and being in possession of housebreaking implements. One of the suspects has also been involved in other serious and violent crimes.
