Reaction Unit South Africa | Kwa-Zulu Natal | NARI
16 May 2018, Waterloo, KwaZulu Natal: Seen in these pictures are Reaction Officers who are searching for a lone suspect who has made several attempts to gain forced entry in the home of a 55 year old woman who is a cancer patient & lives alone at her Waterloo - Verulam home.
The woman contacted Reaction Unit South Africa after the suspect attempted to force his way into her home via a window. He was clutching a large knife in his right hand.
He fled when the woman grabbed her phone & called the RUSA Operations Center. The woman believes that she is a target because of her illness & is unable to move around with ease.
The suspect is an African male who has been seen in the vicinity of the home for several days. He is attired in a grey jersey & black pants for the past few days.
The woman lives alone after her son was arrested by RUSA Officers for theft of a large amount of cash last year. He has been incarcerated in Westville Prison for the past nine (9) months.
Reaction Officers have stepped up patrols to ensure the woman’s safety.
