The members saw the suspicious looking suspects while doing patrols in Duiker Road, Lotus River, Grassy Park. One suspect was carrying a firearm in his hand and when he saw the members he pointed the firearm at them and then threw the firearm down and fled.
Both suspects were arrested on the scene on charges of possession of firearm and ammunition and pointing of firearm.
