During a police operation, two City of Cape Town (CoCT) law enforcement vehicles got petrol bombed in Eerste River.

On Saturday night, four officers were attending to a complaint of illegal occupation at the Bosasa housing development when the cars got damaged.

However, the City is offering a R5,000 reward with anyone who has a tangible information that could result to an arrest.

Somebody hurled a petrol bomb into one of the vehicles. That vehicle was extensively damaged but there were injuries to the staff. A second petrol bomb was thrown inside another law enforcement vehicle and the seats were damaged,” said JP Smith, the Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security.

We have opened an attempted murder, arson, and malicious damage to property case with the Mfuleni South African Police Service (SAPS),” Smith added.
