Durban North teenager robbed by men

The suspects fled the scene soon after the robbery.

A 16-YEAR-OLD teenager was robbed of her cell phone and backpack on Sunday by two men who approached her under the pretense of needing help. According to Capt Raymond Deokaran, spokesman for the Durban North SAPS, the incident occurred just after 9am near the Crusaders Sports Grounds.

“The local resident was walking on Ranleigh Crescent and had her headphones in when she noticed two men approaching her. One of the suspects asked for R2 when she said she didn’t have anything the suspects became violent. They robbed her of her iPhone and her backpack with her gym kit in it. The suspects then fled on foot and are still at large,” he said.
