Captain Solomon Sibiya, spokesperson for the Kagiso Police reported that in the early hours of Sunday, 4 March crime-prevention members received a complaint from a member of the community about gang-fighting and went to the scene of the alleged crime. They parked a few metres away and walked the rest of the way to the tavern.

“Police noticed a group of people gathered outside the tavern. They entered the yard to find that there was some confrontation between the two groups. When a police officer tried to intervene, one of the suspects attacked his colleague with his fists.

Another suspect threw an empty bottle at the police vehicle, damaging its windscreen,” said Sibiya.

Another two police officers arrived to assist, but a group of unknown men also attempted to attack them. They swore at the police and one of them attacked the officer with a golf club. Police finally managed to arrest six of the attackers.

They were detained at Kagiso Police Station where a case docket of assault on a police officer and malicious injury to property was opened. The suspects will appear in court soon.
