THE South African Police Service Walmer Detectives Unit is urgently seeking the community’s assistance in tracing a robbery suspect.

It is alleged that on December 21, 2016, at about 2pm, the victim was at Arlington tip in Victoria Drive, Walmer.

As he was exiting the gate, he was approached by three men armed with knives and firearms. He was robbed of his gold chains and rings.

The accused, Luthando Mtati (25), alias Libo, was arrested on December 29, 2016, and was granted bail with conditions on January 10, 2017.

In March 2016, Mtati failed to comply with his bail conditions and a warrant for his arrest has since then been issued.

Police suspect that Mtati may also be involved in other crimes committed in the Walmer area.

Anyone who can assist the police in tracing the suspect is asked to contact D/Capt Elroy Lindoor of the Walmer Police Station on 041 581 1496 or 082 319 8707 or contact the nearest police station.
