A man who allegedly posed as a police officer and committed a robbery in Durban has been arrested.
On Monday, police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said officers were patrolling Warwick Avenue around midday on Sunday, when they were approached by a man who told them that two unknown suspects had robbed him.
"It was alleged that one of the men posed as a police officer. The victim was searched and robbed of his belongings by the two men.
"The police officers conducted a follow-up operation, which led them to the Phoenix taxi rank in the CBD, where one of the suspects was positively identified by the victim. A 35-year-old man was searched and was found in possession of the complainant's cellphone and cash," Gwala said.
