House Robbery in Glenashley: Elderly Woman Held at Knifepoint

This morning at approximately 09h05, the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received a call from a member of the public reporting a house robbery on Burne Crescent in the Glenashley area. Multiple armed response officers and members of our Special Operations Team were immediately dispatched to the scene.

Upon arrival, it was established that the suspect had held an elderly lady at knifepoint and tied her up with shoelaces. The suspect then fled with a cell phone, a TV, a pair of shoes, a key with a remote, and an expensive gold bracelet. A description of the suspect was circulated, and members began a search.

A few minutes later, the suspect was spotted fleeing into the Virginia Bush in the Durban North area. An extensive search of the bush was conducted by the SAPS K9 Unit and our Special Operations Team, but there was no sign of the suspect. However, the TV and pair of shoes were recovered in the bush.

A special thanks goes out to the Home Hawkes Neighborhood Watch for their assistance in attempting to locate the suspect.
