Limpopo – Two suspects have escaped while being transported from Burgersfort Regional Court to Leboeng Police Station, Limpopo police said on Wednesday.

David Ramahlo, 30, and Moses Ngwatle, 39, escaped following their appearance in court for housebreaking and theft cases, police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said.

"When the police car stopped at a robot in Burgersfort town, the two suspects who were handcuffed opened the door, jumped out and disappeared," Ngoepe said.

Police would investigate the circumstances around the incident, Ngoepe said.  

Anyone with information which can lead to the re-arrest can contact crime stop number 0860010111 or the crime line sms 32211.
