Robbery victim shoots suspect in Durban CBD

An opportunist robber came off second best in the Durban Central Business District this afternoon when he attempted to rob a man of his cellphone. 

The thirty-seven-year-old motorist was parked in traffic in Alice Street when he was approached by a group of men. The suspects pulled the victim's driver's door open and attempted to stab him whilst grabbing his phone. The quick-thinking victim fired a shot in defense of his life, striking one of the men in his leg, whose accomplices then fled on foot, abandoning him on the scene. 

The suspect was attended to by KZN provincial EMS, before being taken to hospital under police guard. 

The victim was treated for mild shock-related symptoms and taken to the hospital for further care. 

The South African Police Services were in attendance and will be conducting the necessary investigation accordingly.
