IT appeared to be a quiet week on the crime front, with few incidents reported.
There was an attempted break-in at Highwood Estate in Wood Street late last Thursday night.
MultiSecurity responded to a panic signal from the premises. A tenant told the response officer that someone who looked like the caretaker had tried to break into their unit, using a long stick to reach into an open window in attempt to hook the keys.
The burglar fled when the tenant spotted him. Nothing was taken, but the tenant opened a case with the police.
At about 1am on Friday, MultiSecurity responded to a panic signal in Riverside Drive.
The owner said someone had been ringing their doorbell, but when he went to answer the door, the person had run off, jumped into a bakkie and sped off.
Response officers patrolled the area but did not see anything suspicious.
MultiSecurity responded to an alarm at a house in Stocks Avenue last Wednesday afternoon and found the glass at a back sliding door had been broken.
Police were also informed and attended. Kowie Glass and Aluminum fixed the door.
