Safe City cctv: five suspects arrested in CBD

2011-10-12 00:00

FIVE suspects were arrested in the CBD last week after their suspicious behaviour was detected on the Safe City network of CCTV cameras.

Two suspects were arrested for robbery and two for breaking in, while a drunken driver was apprehended with the help of the police dog unit and the city’s traffic department.

The police responded to 26 incidents of the 51 monitored.

As is usually the case, brawling near taverns accounted for half the incidents observed.

Safe City general manager Lucas Holtzhausen urged members of the public to report any suspicious behaviour by SMS to 083 767 72 23.
