Philippi-East: Two Golden Arrow Bus robbers are due to appear in the Athlone Magistrates' Court tomorrow (Wednesday, August 25).

The men, aged, 29 and 36-years-old were arrested for armed robbery as a result of tip-offs received by police members on patrol on Govan Mbeki road last night.

The suspects accosted their victims by threatening them with knives on the bus.

When the suspects noticed the police members stopping the bus, they tried to evade arrests but to no avail.

We appealed to residents to keep reporting criminal activities in the area by phoning the Crime Stop number on 08600 10111 or reporting it via the MySAPS app, where they can provide tip-offs anonymously.
