Two guards robbed with toy gun and panga

Two men, armed with a toy gun and panga, allegedly robbed two security guards outside a business in Perseverance, Despatch, on Friday.

“It is alleged that two armed suspects robbed two security officials outside the premises and they took a radio modem, cellphones and cash and fled,” police spokeswoman Captain Gerda Swart said.

Shortly after the robbery, police arrested one of the suspects hiding at a house in Veeplaas.

“The police officials arrested a 24-year-old male suspect in Veeplaas and recovered the radio modem and cellphones and confiscated a toy gun and a panga that was allegedly used in the robbery,” she said.

“The second suspect is still at large and police are following up on leads.”
