Joe Slovo Rd thugs arrested

Last week Hillbrow police arrested two men who allegedly mugged a journalist in Joe Slovo Road, Berea.

The journo, Yusuf Omar of The Star newspaper was robbed in a smash-and-grab incident in Berea last Saturday.

That was a time when hundreds of people were flocking to watch the rugby match between the Springboks and England.

Omar said he had parked his car in Joe Slovo Road near the corner of Abel Road. “Two smiling men crossed the road in front of the car, and suddenly one of them smashed the driver’s side window. One of them held my throat as the other shouted that he wanted my phone and money, and searched my pockets.”

Moments later the men ran into the darkness in separate directions, chased by two police officers, Cst Sibusiso Mhlungu and Cst Julius Nyandeni, while Cst Acceptance Nyakale asked if he was okay.

A short while later the police returned with the suspects and two cellphones that had been recovered.  The men have appeared at the Hillbrow Magistrate court on a charge of robbery.
