The fourth suspect has eluded capture. Any information that could help the police apprehend the suspect should be directed to Lieutenant Colonel Mashodi, Roodepan Detective Commander, at 082 4690 681.
However, because the person on the run is believed to be highly armed, we ask that members of the public not approach him; instead, call 911 or Crime Stop at 08600 10111, or report information via the MySAPSApp.
