Teamwork in Walmer, results in an arrest!
The Atlas Security Control Room received a message on the Walmer South 911 WhatsApp group on Saturday indicating that there had been an incident of trespassing in Fordyce Road – residents stated they still had eyes on the suspect. Armed Response was immediately dispatched.
The incident began when the suspect entered a yard. When spotted by the resident who was in their garden, the suspect allegedly picked up a brick and started approaching the resident. When the suspect realized that the resident was not alone he dropped the brick and fled the scene.
The suspect was followed through the streets of Walmer until Armed Response arrived on scene and were directed to the location that the suspect was now hiding. Armed Response Officers found the suspect and rewarded him with a pair of Atlas Security handcuffs, he was thereafter handed over to the SAPS.
We commend the community for the significant role that they played in the arrest and for their alertness. This once again shows the effectiveness of teamwork in the war against crime. Atlas Security continues to empower our communities through various social media platforms and encourage residents to report any incidents to our Control Room as soon as possible.
