Police are appealing to members of the public, who may have information that can assist with this and other investigations, to contact the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991/2, Crime stoppers at 328-TIPS (8477) or the nearest police station. Investigations are ongoing.
Members of the public are also urged to take a stand against illegal firearms by cooperating with the police in providing information regarding the whereabouts of any illegal firearm.
The RBPF also continues to provide personal safety tips to members of the public. Persons are advised to; think about their safety, before you leave home, make sure someone knows where they are going, who they are with and what time they are likely to return. They should always fully charge their mobile phones and keep it with them so they can keep in contact with your friends and family and ring police should you need to.
Persons should also consider that waking home in the dark is never a good idea, but if they absolutely must, try to walk with a friend, keep on busy, well-lit roads even if it means taking a longer route.
If persons think that someone is following them, go to the nearest place where there are people and ask for help, or, if they cannot find somewhere or are worried about someone’s behavior towards them in anyway, call 919. They should not be afraid about being wrong or over-reacting; the police would rather be called only to find that all is well than be dealing with an incident because someone was afraid of calling them.
Police also advise persons to always try to be aware of what and who is around them and avoid putting themselves in a potentially dangerous situation and even if they are not the ones in danger they should still contact the police if they notice something suspicious.
