ODENDAALSRUS - On 01 August 2022 at about 23:25, it is alleged that a 43-year-old security officer was on duty at Malebaleba Primary School in Kutloanong, when he saw an unknown man who fired one shot at him. A crowbar was used to forcefully open the classroom where the security officer was in and he was tied up at gun point.

The suspects went to the staff room and fled with laptops and cash as well as other valuables. After four hours, the security guard managed to untie himself and screamed for help. The security officer did not sustain any injuries and a case of business robbery was registered for further investigation.

Anyone with information leading to the arrests of these suspects, can contact Detective Constable Modise Kotsi of Odendaalsrus Detective Services on 082 301 2797 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111. Tip-offs can be submitted via the My SAPS App.
