Four suspects have attacked police officers and stolen weapons at Windsorton police station outside Kimberley in the Northern Cape on Wednesday night. Officers on duty were allegedly tied up with cables whilst the suspects ransacked the police station.

The Spokesperson for the Hawks in the Northern Cape Nomthandazo Mnisi says the suspects fled in a white Audi with Botswana registration number, after the robbery.

“Four unknown men entered Windsorton police station and gun pointed the two police officials who were on duty and they were tied up with cables. They managed to steal four pistols and two rifles were also stolen with 52-rounds and other ones with the fourteen rounds. The suspects fled from the scene with a white Audi with the Botswana registration number,” explains Mnisi.
