Three suspects arrested for Gugulethu Mall robbery

Cape Town - Three individuals were apprehended in connection with business robberies at Gugulethu Mall yesterday afternoon.

Police spokesperson Andre Traut said that while on patrol in the area, SAPS members spotted a suspect being pursued by the public, and reacted by arresting the man.

“They were informed that a sports shop was robbed by suspects who fled with cash and clothing. The further intervention of the members resulted in the arrest of two more suspects, who were caught in possession of the stolen goods and cash.”

“Once charged, the three suspects, aged between 18 and 21, are scheduled to make their court appearance in Athlone on a charge of business robbery,” said Traut.

Gugulethu police station’s Colonel AS Moreku said that since the mall’s construction, the station has received several business robbery reports from the location.
