Bloemfontein: Four suspects aged between 27 and 52, made a brief appearance in the Bloemfontein Magistrate court on the 20 April 2020 and the case was postponed to 28 April 2020 for formal bail application.

Four suspects were arrested over the weekend in Mangaung for for allegedly committing business robbery at Batho Post Office.

Bloemfontein Tactical Response Team followed a Crime intelligence led information on a group of suspects that attacked Batho Post Office on the 31st March 2020.

It is alleged that the heavily armed suspects stormed the post office pointing employees and security with firearms demanding cash. Fortunate enough, the SASSA payout was still to be delivered at the Post office.

The suspects fled the scene without any money but robbed the security guard of his pistol, then fled the scene in two VW vehicles, a silver VW Golf and Jetta.
