Two arrested after failed robbery

Two men who allegedly robbed a KwaNobuhle business ran out of luck when they were arrested shortly after the incident yesterday.

The men, believed to be in their 20s, allegedly entered the business in Mtyingazana Street at about 4.15pm and took cash, airtime, cellphones and groceries.

The owner and suspects scuffled and the owner suffered an arm injury. He managed to alert the police. Police responded quickly and apprehended both men inside the shop, recovering all items taken and confiscating two replica firearms.

They will appear in the KwaNobuhle Magistrate’s Court on Monday, police spokeswoman Gerda Swart said.
