Caller Adrian Read raised concerns that criminals make use of the dark to target vulnerable individuals who in this case are his employees.
He says he has been complaining about the lack of security in the city centre at the time that his employees make their way home. However, Muneeb Hendriks, manager for Safety and Security at Central City Improvement District says he has not received any formal complaint from Read to be able to deploy resources at affected areas.
Director of Law Enforcement - City of cape Town, Robbie Robert encourages that these incidents be reported so that they can be investigated. He says some of the streets in the city centre have security cameras and footage can be provided when a case is reported.
Should a case be reported we can provide the footage to be part of the police investigation in order to apprehend the suspect/s.— Robbie Roberts, Director of Law Enforcement
