Police in the Park Road station area would like to warn members of the public to remain vigilant at all times, especially in the CBD and surrounding areas.

The Bloemfontein CBD and surrounding shopping complexes have now become hotspots for robbery and theft out of motor vehicles. These crimes usually occur in places where there is a high volume of people or during busy times of the month.

Criminals take advantage of these circumstances to grab cell phones and handbags, and in other cases, use remote jamming devices to steal personal belongings out of vehicles.

Residents and shoppers are advised to avoid being easy targets and remain alert at all times when running errands in shopping malls and complexes.
