Cops hunt fugitive

2013-11-21 00:00

AN urgent appeal has been made by Detective Warrant Officer Leon le Roux of the Port Shepstone Organised Crime Unit to help locate Xolani Ndlovu, who allegedly escaped from police custody on October 27 and is now wanted on a warrant of arrest.

Ndlovu (pictured) was arrested for an armed robbery in Durban and an attempted murder in Kwadukuza and was subsequently linked to an armed robbery and attempted murder cases being investigated by the Port Shepstone Organised Crime unit.

He was transferred from prison to the Port Shepstone police cells for investigation purposes but passed himself off as another prisoner who was due to be released from custody and fled.

Warrant Officer le Roux can be reached on 039 688 2300 or 071 481 2556. The public is warned not to approach or attempt to arrest Ndlovu as he is considered dangerous.

Anyone who sees Ndlovu or who knows of his whereabouts may also contact their local police on 10111 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
