In the early hours of Saturday morning, our Dedicated Patrol Officers were alerted by a concerned resident about a disruptive individual causing havoc in the vicinity of Admiralty Way. Acting swiftly, they immediately responded to the situation.
Despite the assailant’s attempt to harm them with a knife, the officers fearlessly apprehended him within seconds, displaying exceptional bravery and skill. With their expert handling, no excessive force was needed, and the suspect was promptly restrained using handcuffs.
Recognizing the gravity of the situation, the officers requested backup, which was provided by one of our senior officers. Taking charge of the scene, Officer B8 reassured nearby residents of their safety, calming any concerns they may have had.
The SAPS also arrived at the scene and assessed the situation, concluding that the male suspect may be dealing with mental health issues.
We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our Dedicated Patrol Officers, B167 and B138, for their unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of the Summerstrand community.
