Johannesburg - An 18-year-old man accused of house robbery has been arrested in Meadowlands, Soweto police said on Friday.
The man was apprehended by residents on Thursday evening in Zone 7 after a robbery, said Constable Sibusiso Chauke.
Apparently three men robbed a Soweto family of a TV and R1000 in cash.
“They fled and the complainant screamed for help… the neighbours managed to apprehend the man who was carrying the TV.”
The other two men ran away and police were searching for them.
The arrested man was expected to appear in the Meadowlands Magistrate's Court on Friday, said Chauke.
