On Wednesday, our officers attended to a house breaking at a vacant premise in Durban North.
At approximately 02h40, Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received a call from a client on Wimbledon Place in the Durban North area who informed us that there were suspects in the neighbouring vacant premises.
Multiple Armed Response Officers were immediately dispatched and arrived on the scene within minutes.
As our Armed Response Officers entered the vacant property, two suspects were spotted and immediately started to flee on foot. One suspect was apprehended whilst the second suspect unfortunately managed to evade arrest.
Durban North SAPS were informed accordingly and arrived on the scene a short while later.
Unfortunately due to the vacant house being severely stripped and damaged already from previous house breakings and with homeowners no longer residing in the area the suspect was warned and released.
