Hunt for Abram­jee rob­bers

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

A MAN­HUNT was un­der way for two armed rob­bers who broke into Crime Line head Yusuf Abram­jee’s home in Eras­mia, west of Pre­to­ria, yes­ter­day, po­lice said.

The rob­bers first tar­geted another nearby house but were in­ter­rupted by po­lice, Lieu­tenant-Colonel Lun­gelo Dlamini said.

In the car they left be­hind, which was re­ported stolen in the area ear­lier in the week, po­lice found equip­ment used for house­break­ing.

The rob­bers moved to Abram­jee’s house, where they jumped an elec­tric fence be­fore rob­bing them of a car at gun­point.

“As they were driv­ing out of the premises, they fired sev­eral shots, and a shoot-out with the owner of the house Abram­jee en­sued,” Dlamini said.

His car has not yet been re­cov­ered. – Sapa
