A 24-year-old man has been arrested for robbing students in Johannesburg.

He was apprehended yesterday after robbing a 19-year-old man and his friend on their way home, Warrant Officer Xoli Mbele said today.

They were walking when he confronted them with a firearm and demanded their cellphones.

Mbele said he searched them and took their calculators. He tried to run away but police on a routine patrol cornered him and he was arrested.

A revolver with no serial number and ammunition was recovered.

The man was charged with armed robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
