Durban – Police are scouring northern KwaZulu-Natal for two prisoners who escaped from the Stanger police station on Monday night.

Two independent police sources, who could not be named, said one of the men went by the alias “Snowy”.

Police spokesperson Shooz Magudulela said the two overpowered a policeman who entered the holding cells to bring the prisoners their food at 17:15 on Sunday.

They attacked him as he was trying to lock the cell door after delivering the food.

“Two prisoners managed to escape through the store room roof. One officer sustained bruises on the left arm.”

Police appealed to anyone with information on the pair’s whereabouts to contact KwaDukuza Saps on 032-551-8229 or Crime Stop on 08600-10111.
