A police officer from Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) who was off duty and helped his neighbor had to get 12 stitches to the wound in his back after a suspected housebreaker attacked him with a knife.
Ao. George Frikkie Vermaak even on his day did not think twice about doing the expectations of the blue uniform standered by assisting in the arrest of Mangaliso Mzileni (30), who residents of Blouwater Bay believed to have harassed last Wednesday.
Mzileni, who was caught in his possession with around R10 000's suspected stolen jewellery, already appeared on charge of housebreaking and attempted murder in the local magistrate's court on Friday. He will bring a formal bail application to court on March 9
According to dot. Priscilla Naidu, police spokesperson, Ray Marsh, Entertainment's neighbour, received a call from his wife earlier this Wednesday morning that she was confronted by an unknown man in their yard, after which the man jumped over the border wall. Marsh immediately contacted entertainment and asked for his help. Although entertainment was driving on the N2, he immediately turned back home.
The area was searched, but no sign of the man was found. About an hour later Marsh heard a woman from behind his house yelling and contacted entertainment again.
Both moved speedily in the direction from where the scream came, after which entertainment sounds from Marsh's garage heard. With closer examination, Entertainment saw a man standing inside whose clothing line corresponded with the description of the man who was in Marsh's yard earlier.
Entertainment flattened the man, after which he was stabbed in the back. The man managed to rip loose from Entertainment's grip, but ran him against Marsh.
Marsh and entertainment disarmed the man and arrested.
Naidu just says entertainment was injured in the incident.
The jewellery found in Mzileni's possession is believed to have been stolen in a burglary at another neighborhood's house.
