ACSU control room received a call for assistance at a business at the bottom end of Naudé Street. Both reaction vehicles were notified to respond with Alpha 1, Oubaas De Jager, after we established that a robbery was in progress. ACSU gave chase to three suspects that were fleeing on foot in the direction of Wesselton.
