Shift Commander Stassen and Area Manager Marais were dispatched. They found the male and immediately detained him. SAPS were notified. Sgt. Barron arrived and searched the vagrant. Besides the steel pole, a number of steel/metal items were found in his possession, including a meter lid. The woman mentioned that she would be laying charges for attempted assault. The vagrant was arrested, loaded in to the van and taken away.
