The four suspects from a Soweto robbery early this year, where Herbert Andréa lost N$16 000, appeared at Katutura Magistrate Court this week.
The robbery was spearheaded by Elizabeth Petrus, Simon Hendricks, Immanuel Petrus and Jesaya Naukosho who allegedly pretended to be a police officer during the robbery. The gang allegedly robbed Andréa of his passport, mobile phone and N$16 000 after they ambushed him in Soweto, Katutura on 30th of January.
They were, however, arrested before they got away and are all facing charges of robbery with aggravating circumstances with Naukosho facing an extra charge of impersonating an officer of the law.
They are all currently out on bail, on condition that they do not leave the district of Windhoek and do not interfere with the investigations.
When they made their brief appearance in court this week, they were told to return to court in July this year.
