The new wave of police recruits are evidently doing well to lend a helping hand to the veterans in a bid to clamp down on crime.
In recent months, police activity on combating crime has yielded fruitful results with a substantial number of suspects being apprehended.
Panduleni Shimi was charged with one count of robbery with aggravated circumstance after he robbed Peter Mukuve at knife-point.
The robbery is said to have taken place in Gemeinde on 2nd May this year. Shimi threatened to assault Mukuve with the intention of stealing a cellphone and a CD bag from him that contained 8 discs.
The aggravation circumstances are that the 34-year-old accused or an accomplice commissioned the crime with a dangerous weapon.
The suspect was granted bail of N$500, while the case was postponed to 30th July for the police to conduct further investigations.
The presiding Magistrate is Hileni Riana Kavara, while the prosecutor Mendonsa again had the role of Prosecutor.
