An armed robbery quickly ended in disaster when one of the intended victims decided to fight back.
One of the suspects sustained minor injuries and was arrested on the scene.
A robbery attempt at the Nelspark flats was foiled by one of the intended victims on Friday night. According to Mr Jacques Meiring of Bossies Community Justice (BCJ), four suspects tried to steal a hearse parked in the garage.The flat’s occupants reportedly arrived home and two people got out of the vehicle, the driver staying behind. The couple then came across the robbers, one of whom presented a gun and threatened them. The man in the vehicle drove away but made a U-turn and drove back towards the flat.Upon seeing him, the suspects attempted to flee and he pursued them. One of them was hit by the vehicle and sustained minor injuries. He was arrested but the other three managed to escape. Meiring said it seemed that the captured suspect was an illegal immigrant.BCJ, Hi-Tech Security Nelspruit, ADT, White River Flying Squad and J&M Security Nelspruit were on the scene.Meiring noted that it was a relatively calm weekend regarding crime, as there was only one other incident reported besides the armed robbery. In this case, a suspect was spotted hiding in the bush in Kudu Street by Hi-Tech Security officials, also on Friday night.
