Cosmo City residents are warned to please be alert at all times especially during the evenings. Residents are requested to ensure that proper locks are installed on the inside of doors and security gates.
Please DO NOT leave any doors or windows open or unlocked during the night when sleeping.
A group of two to four suspects are targeting residents staying in the “back rooms”. The suspects are forcing or kicking the doors open to gain entry and mostly commit these crimes in the early hours of the morning. The suspects operate on foot and no vehicle has been seen. It is believed that the suspects are in their early twenties. The suspects only take small items, cellphones and cash.
Ensure that you have the number of the South African Police Service (SAPS) to contact immediately when you hear someone at your door or notice any suspicious people or vehicles. Please report any robbery immediately to the SAPS and do not leave the reporting for the next day.
