Peddie police on the heels of armed business robbery suspects

Peddie - Police in Peddi are hot on the heels of the suspects involved in a business robbery that happened in Peddie at about 08:35 on Saturday. 

"It is alleged that the manager was together with his two employees when a suspect entered, pointed at him with a firearm and ordered him to open the safe," decribed police spokesperson, Col Sibongile Soci.

"At that stage, two other suspects followed in and started kicking him. The manager opened the safe and the suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of money and a cellphone.

"They fled the scene with the car belonging to the business, which was later found abandoned. No one was injured during the robbery."

Eastern Cape Provincial Commissioner, Lt Gen Liziwe Ntshinga, said; "SAPS Detectives will work around the clock to trace, track and arrest these suspects."

Anyone who can assist the police with valuable information which may lead to the arrest of the suspects can contact Provincial Organised Crime, Sgt Mkhuseli Mhlawuli on 082 387 9336 or SAPS Crime Stop 08600 10111 or at any nearest police station.
