Johannesburg – Vanderbijlpark police are investigating a case of murder, attempted murder and assault after a group of foreign nationals attacked them while they were raiding a suspected drug den.

Gauteng police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said on Tuesday the police went to a house where drugs were allegedly being sold.

When the police arrived, they were confronted by a group of men who attacked them.

“The police fired shots to try and defuse the situation but six police officers were already injured after being assaulted by the group of men.

“The police withdrew from the house and then suddenly the men took out a dead person from the house and placed it on the bonnet of the police vehicle.”

Makhubela said while no one was arrested, a case of murder, attempted murder and assault was being investigated by the Vanderbijlpark police station.

He said the police were still searching for the suspects who assaulted the police.

The men continue to attack the police officers.

“Who killed this guy?” one officer is heard asking.
