TWO Zimbabweans and an equal number of South Africans have been arrested in Johannesburg, South Africa, for armed robbery and illegal possession of ammunition.

In a statement on Thursday, the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department’s communications unit said the suspects are due to appear in court soon.

Circumstances are that on June 14, police officers in Johannesburg received a complaint from two students who alleged they had been robbed of their cellphones at Delvers and Albert Street by five males.  “Officers proceeded to the area where the robbery occurred and followed up on information of the suspects who committed the robbery.

“The information led officers to a building at End and Albert Street where they found three male suspects identified by the complainants. The rooms were searched and three toy firearms, two okapi knives and five live 9mm ammunition were recovered,” said the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department.

“Whilst searching for a fourth suspect, information led officers to where the suspect resides. Upon arrival, a 17-year-old female was found in the room. When searching the room, another toy firearm and live ammunition was recovered.”
