More alleged vandals turn themselves in

2012-10-09 08:53

Six more soccer fans have handed themselves to police in Dobsonville, Soweto, after Mamelodi Sundowns fans vandalised the local stadium, Johannesburg police have said.

“The six men arrived this morning at the Dobsonville Police Station and will appear in the Protea Magistrate’s Court later today or tomorrow,” Warrant Office Kay Makhubela said.

This took the number of people who had handed themselves to police since Saturday to nine. They would face malicious damage to property, trespassing, and vandalism charges.

The three other men who handed themselves over at the weekend would appear in the Protea Magistrates’ Court today.

On Sunday, September 30, Sundowns supporters tore down the stadium’s security fence, stormed the pitch and caused about R27 000 worth of damage after their team lost to Moroka Swallows.
