On Friday, 28 December 2018, police in Hartbeespoortdam re-arrested one of the six (6) awaiting trial prisoners who escaped from lawful custody in the early hours on Thursday, 20 December 2018.


Talent Machinda (25) was re-arrested at approximately 23:00 after a follow-up was made on information that he was spotted at Matshelapad informal settlement in Broederstroom. Machinda was in detention for possession of suspected stolen goods and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition when he escaped. The crimes were allegedly committed in September 2018.


Police are still appealing to members of the community to assist with locating and or providing information that can lead to the re-arrest of five (5) accused who escaped on the same day, 20 December 2018, by sawing through the burglar proofing.  Their names are: Felix Mlambo (26), Ciphus Shilenge (26), Henry Sithole (22), Charles Chauke (34) as well as Paul Samuel Mozite (24).  They were detained for various offences including murder, house and business robberies and possession of unlicensed Firearms and ammunition. 


Members of the community are further urged not to try and apprehend or confront the escapees as they may be dangerous.


Anyone with information that may lead to re-arrest of the escapees can call the nearest police station or contact the Investigating Officer, Colonel Simon Mokwena at 082 856 1326.-End-
