Suspected robbers who threatened to kill baby arrested
While two men have already been arrested in Diepsloot, police say they’re searching for a third.
JOHANNESBURG - Police say two men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery in which they threatened to kill a baby in Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg.
The robbers demanded cash and cellphones from three women during the incident last Friday.
They also threatened to shoot an 11-month-old baby if the women didn't cooperate with them.
Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Daniel Mavimbela says they're still searching for a third suspect.
"The police subsequently managed to arrest two men who will be appearing today. The third suspect, whom we happen to believe is behind a spate of violent crimes in Diepsloot, is still on the run."
