Surfnet Corner, an internet cafe in Kremetart Street, Extension Four has recently been a target for crime. Joylinda Hampton, who works at the internet cafe said that the incident which happened on Monday, September 9 has left her feeling unsafe.

“It happened at around 3 p.m. It was a normal day, it was busy with customers coming in and out of the shop. There wasn’t any foul play, everyone who came in was friendly,” said Hampton.

“An elderly woman and a young man then came into the shop. I turned my back towards them to assist another customer. When I turned around to face them I noticed that the young man was no longer in the shop. I didn’t think anything of it at the time. I assisted the elderly woman and when she left I reached for my bag and that is when I noticed that my bag was gone,” she added.

Hampton said that she spent the remainder of the day looking for her bag in hopes that she would find it. “I then asked to view the security footage and that is when I saw that my bag, which was under my table, was taken by the young man who came in with the elderly woman,” said Hampton.

“My cell phone, money, books, and my daughters’ examinations papers were in the bag,” she added.

Hampton further explained that she now feels uneasy and unsafe. “I am disappointed, I have served this community for years, nothing like this has happened before, so I am surprised. I urge all residents and businesses to be more vigilant as petty crimes are still taking place in our community,” she concluded.

The video footage was shown to the police and a case was opened at the Eldorado Park police station for further investigation.
