Recent Shootings

The Durban North CPF would just like to state that there is no link between the business robbery on 10 April 2024, and the alleged shooting that occurred at a private residence on 29 April 2024 that both occurred in the Broadway/Durban North precincts.
Regarding the incident on the 29 April 2024, unconfirmed reports seem to point to the fact that the suspects and victims may have known each other, and there are no indications that this was a robbery. The investigation is still ongoing by the Durban North SAPS, and the actual motive and relationship between the parties is still to be fully determined. Any other information out there is still purely speculative.
We are not seeing an escalation in terms of targeted armed robberies, and any other incidents of alleged shootings, whilst unfortunate, have been isolated, and not part of a trend.
As a CPF, a major concern right now is the number of fraud cases we are seeing, with our residents being scammed out of large sums of money, to people posing as bank or cellphone call centres, and victims handing over bank account access, or EFTing large sums. We cannot impress enough on residents to never disclose personal banking information to anyone. Banks or other providers never ask for your account details, password, Pin or OTP.

Robbery Suspects Apprehended

This morning at 03H55 an attempted house breaking at a house in Danville Ave was reported on the Sector 1B Home Hawks Security group.

Members of the Home Hawks Neighbourhood Watch and Marshall Security attended the scene. Suspects had already run away. Patrollers stayed in the area and then noticed a suspicious grey Toyota driving very slowly On Newport Ave.

Patrollers decided to follow. Once the driver spotted the patrollers and Marshall Security vehicle he drove off leaving his two friends behind. Two suspects were apprehended. We are certain that the description and the modus operandi of theses suspects fit other breakings in the area lately. Big shout out to Home Hawks Patrollers and Marshall Security for there excellent work this morning.

Suspects were handed over to SAPS for further investigation
