JANUARY 28, 2016

Mdantsane police nabbed three suspects, aged between 23 and 27 years old, at Unit P area, outside East London, on Wednesday for housebreaking.

"The arrest follows a house robbery incident, which occurred during the night on Monday at Cambridge Location, in East London, where a group of five armed suspects entered the house and robbed the owners of their valuables and cash before fleeing on foot," the police said.

"Acting on information, police arrested the suspects at a house in Unit P, Mdantsane and recovered the laptop and cell phones and confiscated two toy guns and two knives.

"There is a possibility that the suspects could be linked to other similar incidents committed around East London."

The trio will appear in the East London Magistrate Court on Friday, facing charges of house robbery and possession of suspected stolen property.
