Cradock - On the 19th of August, the Cradock Regional Court sentenced a 28-year-old male, Sinethemba Mahlengele, to 15 years direct imprisonment on charges relating to robbery with aggravating circumstances.

"This followed an incident on 19 June 2017, at about 19:45, when a 37-year-old, Anele Silingile, was assaulted with a golf stick by the suspect while robbing him of an undisclosed amount of money and a Mobicel cell phone," said police spokesperson, Capt Lariane Jonker.

She said that the suspect was traced and arrested by Detective Constable Siyabonga Ntsimango, "who left no stone unturned to ensure that this criminal was brought to book".
