“There are these steep roads that connect to the road, and the spot where the officers were based is shaped like a wedge. That is the road the young man used to escape. On realizing he could not catch the young man, the officer shouted at him many times. But there is little he could do as the man vanished into the bushes.”
The witness further added that one male police officer attempted to pursue the thief, however, his efforts were in vain as he couldn’t get hold of him.
