Tembinkosi Kinana, police spokesperson, said preliminary investigation indicates that five suspects entered the Moyeni police station near Peddie in the Eastern Cape early in the morning on the pretext that they needed help.

The suspects pulled out firearms and detained the officers before fleeing with a R5 rifle and two 9 mm pistols.

“While the suspects were fleeing, they came across another police officer and stole his police vehicle. The vehicle was later found abandoned about 2 km from the police station. ” The suspects are still wanted.
