Armed robbers flip vehicle in high speed chase in Tongaat - KZN

12 July 2020 | From Arrive Alive


A House Robbery suspect has been arrested by Members of Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) during a high-speed chase in Tongaat - Kwazulu Natal a short while ago.

At approx 18:29 the RUSA Operations Center in Tongaat received a call of a robbery in progress from a homeowner on Belvedere Drive in Belvedere. The caller informed the Controller on duty that armed men were on the roof of his house & that a grey Audi with registration ND 554 *** was parked near his property with a male remaining in the driver's seat. He did not have a visual of the remaining digits on the number plate.

Multiple Reaction Officers were dispatched to the home and a RUSA Biker noticed a vehicle with the circulated number plate speeding down Belvedere Drive. The biker gave chase and via radio contacted Reaction Officers in Ballito, Phoenix & Verulam to keep a lookout for the suspects' vehicle. The vehicle was spotted by responding Reaction Officers near King Shaka International Airport & a high speed ensued. Reaction Officers from the Phoenix area intercepted the suspects near Ottawa and boxed the vehicle in. The suspects attempted to flee on the R102 by driving on the centre medium between the north & southbound lanes. They then flipped the vehicle several times and fled on foot.

An hour later and during a lengthy search one suspect was arrested several kilometres from the scene. He suffered injuries from the vehicle rollover and was taken into custody by Reaction Officers without incident.

The Audi with the same registration plate was captured on CCTV on the 19/10/2019 after the occupants used the car to commit a House Robbery in Spencer Road - Clare Estate.
