The Rep - - NEWS - – Rep re­porter

Last Tues­day, Red Guard re­sponse of­fi­cers at­tended to a panic alarm at a lo­cal hair sa­lon. The of­fi­cers were shown a woman who had fallen down, al­legedly as a re­sult of a sus­pected stroke, oper­a­tions man­ager Wil­lie Rey­necke said.

There was no am­bu­lance avail­able in Ko­mani and the re­sponse of­fi­cer went to the clinic to find a nurse who could as­sist. The nurse con­firmed that the woman had passed away.

Re­sponse of­fi­cers ap­pre­hended a man who had threat­ened to kill the owner of a re­cy­cling busi­ness and handed him over to the po­lice last Wed­nes­day.

An at­tempted break-in at a Mlungisi bot­tle store was foiled after a re­sponse of­fi­cer on pa­trol no­ticed that the chain which se­cured a cage with liquor had been cut. He in­formed the owner and a guard was posted un­til the morn­ing.

On Fri­day, re­sponse of­fi­cers saw sus­pects rob­bing an el­derly per­son at a lo­cal bank. The sus­pects fled in a Toy­ota ve­hi­cle with the of­fi­cers giv­ing chase. Three sus­pects were ap­pre­hended near a lo­cal mall with sev­eral bank cards and cash re­cov­ered. The sus­pects were handed over to the po­lice.

A West­bourne res­i­dent, who had called Red Guard to re­port the al­leged as­sault of a child by his fa­ther in the street, was as­sisted and the child, aged 14, was taken to the po­lice sta­tion.
