Two armed suspects nabbed after committing a crime



Two suspects were arrested by the Burgersfort SAPS for shooting and robbing a shopper on Wednesday.


It is alleged that three unknown suspects wearing black balaclavas followed a 41 year-old business man who was walking at Twin City Complex intending to deposit a large amount of cash to the First National Bank (FNB).

Unexpectedly, the suspects suddenly fired several shots to scare off the consumers at the Complex and subsequently attacked the victim who refused to hand over the money.

The victim was shot on the lower body and ultimately handed over an undisclosed amount of cash to the suspects who immediately fled the scene driving a white VW Polo motor vehicle.

Police received information about the robbery and immediately started to search for the three suspects who were in company of the fourth suspect alleged to be a getaway driver.

The vehicle fitting the description was spotted driving along R555 Steelpoort road and attempts to stop it were not successful and a car chase ensued until the suspects were cornered at Marloti brick yard.

They abandoned the vehicle and tried to flee on foot but Police managed to arrest two suspects whilst the other two evaded arrest. The victim is currently admitted in hospital after sustaining injuries and a manhunt have since been launched for the suspects.


The two suspects aged 38 and 41 are expected to appear before the Burgersfort Magistrate court soon facing charges of robbery with a firearm and attempted murder.


Limpopo SAPS commissioner, Lt General Thembi Hadebe commended the swiftness at which suspects were arrested by our dedicated members while in the same breath humbly requested urgent assistance from members of the community to assist in arresting the remaining two unknown suspects.


Anyone with information that can assist with the apprehension of the remaining two suspects should contact the investigating officer, Col Elias Zwane on 082 449 0273 or crime stop number 0860010111 or nearest police or My SAPSApp. Police investigations are continuing.
