PO­LICE are seek­ing the as­sis­tance of the pub­lic with lo­cat­ing two men who posed as pa­tients and were in­volved in a busi­ness rob­bery in Grassy Park.

Po­li­cen said the rob­bery took place at a doc­tor’s surgery last month.

The rob­bers posed as pa­tients be­fore they at­tacked and tied up the doc­tor and as­sis­tant. They robbed the staff and pa­tients of their be­long­ings.

Pro­vin­cial po­lice spokesper­son Sgt Noloy­iso Rwex­ana said: “Grassy Park po­lice are seek­ing the as­sis­tance of the com­mu­nity in lo­cat­ing the sus­pects who are wanted in con­nec­tion with a busi­ness rob­bery on May 31 about 12.30pm at a surgery be­tween Perth and Prince Ge­orge Drive, in 5th Av­enue, Grassy Park.”

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the two men en­tered the surgery and posed as pa­tients. The sus­pects then threat­ened the doc­tor and the as­sis­tant with a firearm and tied them up be­fore rob­bing them and two pa­tients of cash, cell­phones and valu­ables.

Any­one who has any in­for­ma­tion that can lead to the ar­rest of the sus­pects should con­tact Det­Sgt Adiel No­or­dien Bon­gashe on 021 700 3908 or 078 353 2922 .

Po­lice also urged peo­ple to be­come in­volved in the re­ward sys­tem.

Rwex­ana said: “Po­lice are fur­ther ap­peal­ing to the broader com­mu­nity to get in­volved in the re­ward sys­tem.

“This sys­tem al­lows any adult mem­ber of the com­mu­nity to be­come proac­tively in­volved in the preven­tion of crime. Crime and crim­i­nals can be re­ported and a re­ward could be re­ceived by the re­porter.”
