Police van escapees still at large

Two suspects who were caught on camera maneuvering their way out of a Durban police van remain at large. 


A video of their recent escape shows the duo pushing and bending open the bottom section of a police van door eventually getting free and making a run for it. Onlookers can be heard laughing. 

The KZN MEC for Community Safety Mxolisi Kaunda has ordered an urgent probe into the matter.

Department spokesperson Sipho Khumalo says the investigation will also look into whether the SAPS officers who made the arrest were negligent.

The matter is currently being investigated by the police. Once the investigation has been finalised, we will make public the outcome of the investigation,'' he said.
