Vigilant Blue Security Officer Arrests Alleged Robber in Cowies Hill

A vigilant Blue Security armed response officer arrested an alleged robbery suspect after he heard a domestic worker screaming for help in Cowies Hill, in the early hours of 24 January 2020.

Blue Security tactical ambassador for the Highway Area, Russel Lawson, said the officer was patrolling the Cowies Hill Estate precinct when he heard a woman screaming for help. The incident occurred at around 6.10 am.

“He spotted a suspect running towards the corner of Old Main Road and Ernest Whittcutt Road. He immediately gave chase and managed to arrest the suspect who was found to be in possession of a stolen cellphone,” Lawson said.

“The domestic worker reported that the suspect had robbed her of her cellphone and fled the scene. The suspect was handed over to the Pinetown SAPS who attended the scene of the arrest,” he said.

Lawson said the estate area was protected by CCTV surveillance cameras and the firm was working closely with the community to eradicate crime in the suburb.
“Our strong investment in the local community where we continually serve residents to eradicate crime has once again proved successful with this latest arrest. We hope it sends a strong message to criminals that crime of any kind will not be tolerated on our watch,” Lawson said.
