Two men aged 28 and 29 were apprehended by Ravensmead police in Bishop Lavis after they attempted to break into a business in Burgundy Estate in Bothasig, police spokesman Elvis Mahote said.

“Police members arrested both suspects. One suspect is receiving medical treatment at a nearby hospital after he tried to flee from the crime scene,” Mahote added.

Bothasig police are investigating a business break-in. The men, who apparently sped off in a car and were chased by police, are expected to appear in Goodwood Magistrate’s Court soon.

The incident was reported on the “traffic fines, cameras & updates in Western Cape” Facebook page, leading to an outpouring of congratulations to the police on the site.

One woman uploaded a photo of a ruined garden wall and said it was where the men’s vehicle had crashed before they were arrested. - Cape Argus
