Both robbers started jumping walls and running in different directions to confuse police who were by this time tracking them down.

“Neighbourhood watches mobilised from all areas to join the chase and cordoned off the area. One man was arrested on Otto Volek Road, near the New Germany Nature Reserve, after a five-hour manhunt. The second robber is still on the run and the Dog Unit is still tracking him,” said Mathios.

The arrested man was taken to the Pinetown SAPS.
