Two men were arrested after a robbery in Lansdowne last week.

Lansdowne police spokesperson Sergeant Nkululeko Mnyaka says the crime prevention team acted swiftly last Sunday afternoon after hearing about a robbery.

He explains a woman was walking in Flamingo Crescent when the pair mugged her and forcefully took her bag.

“The suspects ran into the Flamingo informal settlement. Police went in to the settlement and found the two suspects inside a shack with the victim’s bag and accessories,” Mnyaka says.

The men, both aged 21 years, were arrested and detained at Lansdowne Police Station.
