“He alleged that he passed an unknown man who was sitting on the bridge across the pathway. The suspect then [allegedly] followed the complainant, walked behind him and then touched the victim on the shoulder,” explained Sibeko.

She added that, as the victim turned his head, he was surprised to see the man pointing a firearm at him. The suspect demanded the victim’s cellphone and wallet, however, the wallet empty, and the robber only stole the cellphone.

The victim was not injured and a case of armed robbery was opened at Parkview Police Station.
