Police are searching for six dangerous suspects who escaped from Boksburg court

All six escaped from the court’s holding cells just after lunch, without police officers noticing.

The accused had appeared before the magistrate in connection with serious crimes, including armed robbery, rape and housebreaking – and were again remanded in custody before police officers led them to the court’s holding cells.

When it was time for them to be taken back to custody, six of the 13 suspects who were in the holding cell were nowhere to be found.

Fanie Hlela is among the six suspects, deemed dangerous, who walked out of the Boksburg Magistrates Court’s holding cells, to freedom, on Thursday afternoon. If you see this man, call your nearest police station immediately

The other seven remained in the cells when the other six suspects made a sudden departure.

Police officers are said to have run helter-skelter trying to look for them, but in vain, as they had already vanished.

Police confirmed the matter and said they were still conducting investigations and looking for the six men.

They urged anyone with information that may lead to the suspects’ arrests to contact their nearest police station or to call Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
