Police arrest 13 for car dealership attack

Eight cars were damaged when a mob of 40 men charged into a luxury-car dealership and started attacking the staff and the cars.

Police have arrested 13 suspects in connection with the attack at a luxury car dealership in Brooklyn two weeks ago.

Forty men, some armed with guns, barged into The Toy Shop, on Wednesday February 17. They ransacked offices, vandalised eight cars and robbed staff of their cellphones.

According to provincial SAPS spokesman Colonel Andre Traut, the 13 suspects were set to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Monday March 1.
