Man in Vanderbijlpark court for unlicensed firearm

A 36-year-old suspect was arrested after he went to the house of his ex-wife, pointed her with a firearm and ordered her to get into the vehicle. She managed to run away not realizing that their child was outside. The man then took the child with and discharged his firearm before he drove to Bophelong.

Members responded to the complaint and began a search at Bophelong.

As they drove around Bophelong, they spotted a white polo which matched the description of the suspect’s vehicle.

They approached the vehicle and ordered the suspect to stop the vehicle but instead he sped-off. The police gave chase and arrested the suspect. He was found in possession of a 9mm firearm and three cartridges.

The suspect will appear before the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate court soon.
