Johannesburg - A man has been arrested for allegedly being part of a gang that robbed his neighbour in Protea Glen, Gauteng police said on Thursday.

Four teenage boys and the 20-year-old man went into a woman's house on Wednesday and held her at gunpoint, said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.

“They tied her hands behind her back and instructed her to show where she kept the watches,” he said.

“They took her to the bedroom, took 12 watches, money, and a cellphone and left.”

Makhubela said one of them was known to the women. He was allegedly a neighbour.

The case was reported to police and the man was arrested.

Police said the four others were still at large.

The man is due to appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court soon. - Sapa
