[LISTEN] Robbed Joburg runner says suspects were arrested and let go
Numerous runners in the north of Joburg have been robbed of their valuables such as fitness watches and running shoes.
In a recent case, Sandra and her friend were accosted by a group of boys driving a dark grey BMW 1 Series who robbed them and fellow runners on Pritchard street in North Riding.
Sandra says while police arrested the boys under the age of 18 and retrieved the items, they were released after spending only a weekend in jail.
They were held for two nights and released on Monday with no charges. All we heard was something about evidence, which we don't understand.Sandra, runner
