Know these three? They are wanted by police for robbing Summerstrand couple

Humewood police, in Port Elizabeth, on Friday appealed to the public for assistance in tracing three suspects, two females and a man, who allegedly robbed a couple as they were opening their door to their Summerstrand house on Wednesday.

According to police information, on Wednesday, at about 17:15, the complainant, a 47 year-old man and his wife (46), who reside within the school’s premises, were proceeding to their house, when they noticed people playing tennis as well as the three suspects sitting on the bench, watching.

"As the complainant was about to open the door, the three suspects approached from behind and grabbed the complainant.

"A firearm was pointed at the complainant and the suspects snatched his bag containing his wallet, cell phone, cash and house keys," said police spokesperson, Colonel Priscilla Naidu. 

"The suspects then ran away. The complainant is wheelchair bound. A case of robbery is under investigation." 

Anyone who may know or recognise  the people in the CCTV footage is asked to contact D/Sgt Constance Brooks on 041 5045222 or 0824421354.
