Doringkruin house robbery and assault of elderly couple, 4 in court

Thabiso Moloi (34), Tshepo Motsiri Nkomo (33), Abraham Kagiso There (28) and Sylvester William (28) appeared briefly before the Klerksdorp Magistrate court for a charge of house robbery on Monday 4 March 2019, and were remanded in custody for further investigations. They are expected to re-appear in court on 11 March 2019 for a formal bail application.

Their court appearance emanates after their arrest, following an alleged house robbery, which was reported in Doringkruin, Klerksdorp on Friday, 1 March 2019 at about 11:30.

It is alleged that an elderly couple had just arrived home from town, when they were overpowered by three unknown suspects, who was waiting for them inside their house.

The 82 year old husband was slapped around and assaulted with an electrical cord. The wife was not assaulted. The couple were locked in a room and the suspects stole electrical equipment, jewellery, a laptop and liquor before fleeing the scene.

A traffic officer on patrol, noticed a suspicious white Mazda vehicle and a chase ensued. He called the police, whose swift response enabled them to corner the suspects. The suspects were involved in a motor vehicle accident at Flamwood Drive and they jumped out of the vehicle and fled into nearby yards, where they were caught and arrested immediately. The stolen goods were also recovered inside their vehicle.

The North West Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Baile Motswenyane congratulated all parties involved in the arrest of the suspects. She also thanked the Traffic Officer for the big role played in apprehending the four suspects. “If police and other agencies work together, we will ensure that criminals are put behind bars where they belong,” she said.
