On Friday evening, officers from the Joburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) K-9 Unit responded to an anonymous tip-off and arrested two armed robbers on the corner of Harvard Road and Hercules Street in Eldorado Park for stealing R360, a cell phone and gold ring from the victim. One suspect escaped. 

The suspects are believed to be linked to a notorious gang who is responsible for terrorising the community of Eldorado Park. They are detained at Eldorado Park SAPS on charges of armed robbery.   

Public Safety MMC Michael Sun says:  “This is this kind of active policing we need to see in all wards across Johannesburg. I commend the JMPD K-9 officers for their swift action in responding to the tip-off received. We will keep on clamping down on criminals in our city. There is no space for them in our communities.”

I have also requested JMPD to intensify by-law enforcement compliance and road-safety awareness as part of Operation #BuyaMthetho to ensure law and order is adhered to across Johannesburg.
