JOHANNESBURG – Police have arrested four awaiting trial prisoners after they escaped from the Roodepoort Magistrates Court.

The group of five men was appearing on Tuesday morning on charges relating to robbery.

Police say one prisoner fled on foot and it’s unclear whether he is armed.

The police’s Lungelo Dlamini said: “We are warning members of the public not to confront him if they see him, but they must contact the nearest police station. His name is Philani Zulu, he was appearing for cases of robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm.”
