Walmer police are investigating a complaint of attempted murder at the Arlington Tip this afternoon after a security guard was shot in the knee.
Captain Sandra Janse van Rensburg said that the guard saw a white Volkswagen Polo enter the dumpsite and just after 1 pm. After driving around the Polo then exited the site. The vehicle returned a while later, once again only driving around before exiting again.
Janse van Rensburg said that the security guard then stopped the suspects at the entrance. "One of the men got out and started shooting at the security guard. The guard returned fire. We think the suspect was wounded. The security guard was shot in the knee."
She said at this stage the motive for the shooting and the visits to the tip was unclear to detectives.
