Three armed black male suspects attempted to rob a home yesterday evening, 1 October 2018, on Autumn Park Drive in Shastri Park, Phoenix. It is believed that the suspects were armed with knives and gained entry into the home and threatened to take a child from the home if goods were not surrendered.

The suspects were disturbed and fled in the direction of Zwelitsha. Alert community members gave chase and one suspect is said to have been knocked over by a vehicle and he passed away whilst another was arrested.

Due to the increase in crime in the area some community members attacked and assaulted the suspect.

All emergency services were on scene.
