Six suspects, who were arrested following a robbery and shootout at Edenvale High school East of Johannesburg last week, are expected to appear in the Germiston Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Four suspects were initially arrested last week, while another two suspects were apprehended over the weekend.
Two alleged robbers were shot dead on the scene. The suspects are facing charges of business robbery, possession of unlicensed firearms and attempted murder.
Gauteng Police spokesperson, Kay Makhubele says, “There are two people who were arrested over the weekend. The Uber taxi driver who was alleged to have been hijacked during the shootout at the school, and another suspect who was hiding in Edenvale. This makes the number of 6 suspects to be arrested. These suspects will appear this morning (Monday) at Germiston Magistrates Court.”
#edenvale #edenvalehighschool When you rob a school during class that is situated next to a police station you either are so stupid, so high or have so little regard for our police force. Apparently they robbed the school on the other side of the police station too recently. pic.twitter.com/C4iWtDXLSk
