Crime surge: Mountain Rise residents called to talks with cops

2012-08-28 00:00

MOUNTAIN Rise residents are invited to a meeting tonight to discuss what can be done about the growing problem of crime in the suburb.

This follows the robbery of top surgeon Dr Mahomedrafi Gafoor and his family and earlier the attempted hijacking of the founder of Gift of the Givers, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman.

Residents have since reported seeing suspicious looking vehicles in the area amid reports of pedestrians in the suburb being robbed at gunpoint. Concerned citizen Essop Dawood called for more visible policing.

Chairperson of the Mountain Rise Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association Ismail Dhoda said members of the SA Police Service would be at the meeting to hear residents’ concerns and to discuss safety issues.

The meeting will be held at the Arthur Blaxall School Hall in Royston Road and will begin at 8 pm.

For details call Dhoda at 083 786 4292.
