Roodepoort family attacked by five men from Soweto
2012-03-24 Five males from Soweto were arrested said SAPS spokesman Katlego Mogale, suspected of attacking an Afrikaner family in Roodepoort and holding them at gunpoint in their home.
Mogale said the Gauteng police's provincial strike-team arrested the gang members in several homes in Soweto "after information was received'.
Stolen goods, four unlicensed firearms, and ammunition were found at the home. The gang was tracked down after they fled in the family's Mercedes-Benz.
Three of the confiscated weapons 'can also be linked to other violent crimes,' he said.
The five suspects are appearing Monday in the Roodepoort regional court for a remand date.
