An alleged robber was killed and six others arrested during an Intelligence-driven operation #CrimeMustFall

Pretoria: 19 August 2018 - The National Commissioner of the South African Police Service, General Khehla John Sitole has commended the continued Crime Intelligence led operations by various multi-disciplinary task teams that continue to squeeze the space of criminals to zero.

In the past week, at The Glen Mall, Moffatview in Johannesburg, one of the teams arrested six suspects, the seventh suspect was fatally wounded during a shootout. This after the group of armed men allegedly robbed a courier van.

The National Commissioner has commended the team for tactically approaching the suspects who were known to be armed and dangerous wherein our members were not injured during a shootout that ensued. “On the 2nd of September we will be commemorating our members who died in the line of duty. In every incident that police are involved in a shootout they have to apply their tactical training to subdue and arrest armed suspects", said General Sitole
