CAPE TOWN - Two suspects have been arrested in Nyanga, following a robbery at a fast-food store this weekend.

On Saturday evening, police were in the vicinity of Nyanga Junction Mall when they were prompted to a robbery nearby.

The police's Novela Potelwa said: “Community members alerted them to a robbery in progress at a fast-food outlet in the area. As the police approached the business, two suspects ran away and got into a vehicle. The members chased after the vehicle and subsequently, two suspects were arrested.”
