Thefts and rob­beries rife in Ko­mani

The Rep - - NEWS -

LAST Tues­day Red Guard re­sponse of­fi­cers were sum­moned to two sce­nar­ios in which would-be thieves grabbed items from shops and ran away and a third when an el­derly wo­man was robbed and wished to lay a charge.

The po­lice were sum­moned and the mat­ter handed over to them, op­er­a­tions man­ager Willie Rey­necke told The Rep.

On Thurs­day a su­per­mar­ket re­ported that two old women had stolen some items. The po­lice were called and the mat­ter handed over.

Re­sponse of­fi­cers were sum­moned to a tav­ern which had called for help af­ter a man had been robbed and stabbed in the stom­ach out­side the premises and had run in for help. The paramedics were called to at­tend to him.

On Satur­day another tav­ern called for as­sis­tance, say­ing an armed man had tried to rape a wo­man and mem­bers of the pub­lic were beat­ing the al­leged per­pe­tra­tor. It was found that it was a toy gun which was con­fis­cated. The wo­man de­clined to open a case.

That night of­fi­cers re­sponded to a panic alarm at a nurs­ing con­cern where they found there had been a break-in, with a win­dow forced open and the bur­glar bars bent. The po­lice were called and a nearby guard pointed out the sus­pects who were ap­pre­hended and taken to the charge of­fice. – Rep re­porter
