5 suspects between the ages of 20 and 30 were arrested after they allegedly robbed an off duty police officer. Items of clothing that he was wearing as well as his cellular phone and wallet were taken from him at knifepoint.
He was not injured. During his report to the local SAPS on Sunday morning members of the Port Alfred K9 unit were alerted. They swiftly responded and found all 5 suspects at a home in Nemato. All items were recovered as well as some of the cash that was taken.
The suspects will appear in the Port Alfred Magistrates’ Court today. The Cluster Commander of Port Alfred, Brigadier Morgan Govender said “Our members need to be vigilant both whilst on and off duty.
