Johannesburg - A number of shops owned by foreigners in Daveyton have been looted, Ekurhuleni metro police said on Wednesday.
“Criminal elements organised themselves into small groups of between six and 12 people and went and looted different shops from around sunset yesterday (Tuesday) until around 9pm,” Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago said.
“Police could not get to all the shops at the same time, we could only get to some. So for those shops we could not get to the residents themselves protected the other shops being looted.”
No injuries were reported.
Metro police have arrested six people.
