Police have launched a search operation for six awaiting trial prisoners who escaped after three armed suspects had ambushed a Police transport vehicle. The prisoners were being transported to Vosloorus Magistrate’s Court when a silver Audi allegedly cut off the Police vehicle at the corner of Barry Marais Road and Rondebult Road in Brakpan. The armed suspects exited the Audi and allegedly released the awaiting trial prisoners before fleeing the scene. Police Spokesperson Brigadier Brenda Muridili stated that five of the escapees are expected to appear in court for a Dawn Park business robbery, attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm. The sixth escapee is expected to appear in court on a shoplifting charge.
