SIX prisoners that were awaiting trial escaped from the Witpoort police cells in the early hours of this morning.
They were arrested on various charges, including rape and armed robbery.
The suspects are:
Silence Duba (23)
Thomas Chuma (29)
Clifford Muhonhori (33)
Phineas Malangoane (36)
Moses Modimola (24)
Jeremia Machaba (28)
One of the escapees, Phineas Malangoane, was arrested on two counts of rape as reported in this week’s Mogol Post on page 6.
Anybody who might know of their whereabouts is requested to contact Captain Rakhubela at 082 469 1353.
As they might be considered armed and dangerous members of the public are advised not to approach them but rather liaise the information with the Police.
The circumstances around the escape are being investigated. (Geleen by Mogol Pos)
