The Monitor :: Suspected Thief Dies ‘On The Job’








The police believe the deceased might be one of the alleged armed robbers who are wanted in connection with another incident that occurred at Block 7 the previous night.

Police allege on the fateful night three unknown men attacked a man in his home, but the robbers met their match, as the victim fought back.  In the brawl, one of the armed robbers got injured.

The incident has left residents of Block 6 and 7 rejoicing across social media platforms expressing that they have long suffered and had sleepless nights at the hands of criminals who terrorise their neighbourhoods. 

Residents suspect the deceased’s accomplices might have abandoned him after discovering he was badly injured.

The Botswana Police Service’s (BPS) deputy public relations officer, senior superintendent Near Bagali told The Monitor that they were still not certain that the deceased is one of the armed robbers who are still on the run.

“We received a report that a man was found dead with stab wounds in Block 6. Earlier that night we received an armed robbery report in which the victim who sustained injuries narrated how he was attacked

and fought armed robbers at his house in Block 7.

Then the armed robbers fled the scene with the victim’s wallet containing his bank ATM cards,” Bagali said. Bagali, however, said it was too early in their investigations to link the two incidents together, as both were still at initial stages.

He said the deceased was found wearing blue jeans and a black jacket and has been taken to the Princess Marina Hospital morgue for a post mortem.  Bagali appealed to members of the community to come forward and identify the deceased.

The Monitor has learnt that during the tussle, the victim managed to grab his attacker’s knife and stabbed him with it. 

The three men (alleged robbers) ran away. From Block 7, the victim was sent to hospital and was treated for minor injuries before being discharged the same day.

Armed robberies in Gaborone and surrounding areas are currently keeping the police on their toes.

Days earlier the police made an arrest of six suspects involved in the recent spate of armed robberies. In the arrest police found a rifle, live ammunition and two pistols.
