They visited an address in Vygieskraal Road where they arrested a 17-year-old suspect,” says Bennett.While Joseph and September were driving down Thames Avenue they heard shots and saw a man with a firearm in his hand running in their direction.“They confronted him and shots were fired. The shooter dropped the firearm and ran down Seine Road. Joseph gave chase but he evaded the police,” says Bennett. A 9mm pistol was recovered on the scene and handed in for ballistic testing.“Joseph is serious about breaking the back of this [spate of] gang violence and will do anything in his power.
