District Central contacted Area Manager M Smith and Armed Response Officer Swartz and requested that they make their way to the Burgundy Control room as an officer from another response company had arrested a suspect male but he had escaped and made his way towards Richwood. Area Manager Smith instructed Officer Swartz to make his way to Richwood. Area Manager Marais was also informed and he made contact with Richwood NHW as well as SAPS. A short while after searching, Officer Swartz noticed the suspect male and gave chase. A scuffle then broke out as Officer Swartz attempted to detain the male. He was eventually detained and when SAPS arrived, he was handed over to them. The male has stolen a bicycle, which was returned to the owner.
