In a separate incident, Community Crime Prevention Organisation (CCPO) footpatrol guards collared two thugs on Saturday, 9 September who had robbed a man in Beach Road.

“One is 15-years-old, so as a juvenile he will only get a slap on the wrist. If you intend going anywhere, be it the beach, bird park and so on, make sure you don’t go alone,” warned CCPO committee member, George Snodey.

On the same day, ET Rapid Response South Coast reaction officer, Ashley Naidoo netted a housebreaker after he stole fishing rods from a premises in Queens Terrace.
