Members of Kimberley Flying Squad arrested two suspects in connection with a case of armed robbery.  Two knife wielding suspects stormed the house of a medical doctor at Klisserville in Kimberley last night.

The Doctor's daughter was threatened with knives by the suspects and handed over her cellphone and laptop to the suspects.  The suspects escaped on foot and the police were notified. Kimberley Flying Squad members reacted swiftly and the suspects were arrested within 30 minutes.

The suspects took a cellphone and laptop worth more than R10 000 and were recovered from the suspects.

The Deputy Provincial Commissioner responsible for policing, Major General Phiwe Mnguni, applauded the member's swift response that led to the arrest of the armed robbers.

The suspects are expected to appear before the Kimberleys’ Magistrates Court on Monday, 05 November 2018, pending further police investigations.
