Eight people were arrested on Monday 27 June after a pizza delivery man was held at gunpoint in Midmar Road in Sheraton Park while delivering a pizza that was ordered from a pizza restaurant in Tokai.

The 23-year-old victim was robbed of the pizza at about 21:00, as well as cash, a cellphone and his delivery scooter.

Muizenberg police spokesperson Captain Stephen Knapp says he escaped and a resident gave him a lift back to the pizza store. “The motorbike, which was fitted with a tracking device, was traced to Avenue La Brenton in Coniston Park. The Muizenberg police swiftly responded and recovered the stolen bike and arrested eight people.

The suspects, aged between 25 and 68, were detained.

Colonel Ismail Daniels, station commander of Muizenberg police, was extremely pleased with the arrest and speedy action of his members. He appeals to all members of the public to be alert and report crime to their local police.
