Watching the action on Saturday evening, a large number of residents expressed their admiration for the Chubb Security guard who foiled the robbers’ getaway, and praised the good police work.

Malcolm Pentecost, outside whose home the crash occurred, said he was in the lounge when he heard a bang. “I realised it was an accident and went to see what had happened.

The four suspects bundled out the BMW and ran down the bank into the dense bush where they split up. The flying squad was here in seconds. Then we heard a shot … The police did a fantastic job. We just hope justice does too.”

Yacoob Mahomed also praised the police and the security guard. “If the security guard had not risked his life, they may have got away.”

Ashish Singh said he is really relieved the suspects were caught, although many people believe there are still more suspects using many different vehicles. “I am sorry for the guy in the Chubb car. He’s brave.”

Police cordoned the road off and many residents were unable to get to their homes while the crime scene was investigated.
