Policing partnership yields positive results

2019-12-10 06:00

The station commander of Muizenberg police Col Vassie Naidoo’s vision of partnership policing saw police, assisted by security and neighbourhood watches, effect the arrest of two suspects involved in an attempted rape and an attempted house robbery in Lakeside.

On Tuesday 3 December at 11:45, a white Citi Golf with three occupants approached a house in Devon Road, Lakeside. One person gained entry to the residence and sexually assaulted the owner of the house, a 68-year-old female. The woman fought back, which prevented anything from being taken from the house.

The neighbourhood watch alerted role players, after which Muizenberg police and a security company responded. Two suspects, aged 28 and 30, were apprehended in Lakeside. The vehicle was recovered. A search is on for the third suspect.
