Man assaulted with firearm

Umkomaas SAPS reported that a 29 year old male complained that on Saturday, March 24, at 8am he had gone to a friend’s house in Area 5 in Danganya where he was assaulted.

He stated that whilst he was at the house, a male known to him came from behind him and hit him on the head using the butt of a firearm. He alleged that the suspect also pointed the firearm at him.

He suffered injuries as a result of the attack and a case of assault GBH has been opened by the police.

At 12.30 on the same day, Constable Nsidane, who had earlier responded to the complaint, arrested a 27 year old male suspect. A 7.65 Star pistol, four rounds of ammunition and a green handled dagger were recovered from the suspect and entered as exhibits.

The acting Station Commander, Lt Col Nene, commended the officer for arresting the suspect and recovering the weapons.

The firearm will be sent for forensic analysis. Charges of illegal possession of a firearm, pointing a firearm and assault GBH will be investigated and heard concurrently.
