Five dangerous men – arrested for rape, robbery and attempted murder – are still on the run after they overpowered a police officer at the Zeerust Police Station, North West, before escaping.
On Sunday at about 10:30 39-year-old Joshua Sibanda, 36-year-old Amogelang Motsiane, 22-year-old Tshepiso kwenampe, 31-year-old Bengu Hlanganane, and 46-year-old Enoch Lebeloane (46) escaped.
Police have since launched a manhunt.
“None of the escapees has been re-arrested and members of the community are urged not to attempt to re-arrest the escapees in case they see them, but to call the nearest police station, as they (escapees) are presumed to be dangerous,” warned the police.
Alternatively, anyone with information about the escapees can call Investigating Officer, Captain Basimane Molefe, on 076 510 8285.
