Suspected house robber found dead in car in Joburg

Johannesburg police made a grizzly discovery on Wednesday afternoon after they spotted a suspicious vehicle parked in Rivonia road.

Police noticed that the vehicle’s back window was smashed out and found the body of a suspected house robber on the back seat.

Emer-G-Med operations manager Jurgen Kotze said the dead man had been part of a gang that had tried to rob a house in Rand Park Ridge earlier in the afternoon.

Kotze said the owner of the house came across the suspects and started shooting at them with his personal firearm.

“They (the suspects) then jumped into their car and drove away as the homeowner was firing. It appears as if they came to a standstill after Rivonia‚ heading North-bound‚ probably after seeing that the suspect had been shot dead‚” said Kotze.

The suspects had fled the scene by the time the police arrived.
