Victims held after shoot-out with robbers
Cape Town - Two victims of a robbery in a night club chased their attackers and, after a gunfight that saw one of the alleged robbers shot dead and another wounded, were themselves arrested, Western Cape police said on Monday.
Spokesperson November Filander said officers found the body of a man, aged 29, in Mamre, Atlantis shortly after 06:00 on Christmas morning. They also took possession of a firearm. Acting on information, police tracked down the vehicle in which the night club patrons were believed to have chased their alleged attackers.
They arrested a woman, aged 20, and a man in his early 20s, said Filander.
The two will face charges of murder and attempted murder when they appear in the Atlantis Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.
