SAPS injures a suspect during a shootout after a Toyota Fortuner, was taken during a house robbery in Harding area

Post by News »

Last night, Umlazi SAPS Detectives swiftly operationalised information about a vehicle’s location, a Toyota Fortuner, which was taken during a house robbery in Harding area.

Upon approaching the vehicle in the vicinity of KwaMnyandu Mall, an occupant in the passenger side, alighted from the vehicle and pointed police with a firearm.

The members fired a shot, injuring the suspect in the leg. Upon closer inspection of the vehicle, police members found a victim in the vehicle who had been badly assaulted and tied up on the back seat floor of the vehicle.

Two suspects managed to flee as they were inside the mall making withdrawals from the ATM using the victim's bank card.

Various incriminating exhibits including a firearm (serial number filed off) and ammunition, a toy gun and suspected stolen property were recovered.

The arrested suspect is currently under police guard in hospital. Police investigations continue.
