The Namibian Police in Erongo has launched a manhunt for two armed robbers, Simon Fillipus Shapaka and Tobias Iyambo (also known as Gabes).

They overpowered a foreign national in Walvis Bay’s Theo-Ben Gurirab Street last Friday, threatened him with a knife, and robbed him of N$30 000 in cash, a bank card and a passport.
The thugs used a taxi as a getaway car. The Police in the meantime made a breakthrough and arrested the taxi driver.
That led to the identification of Shapaka and Iyambo.
Shapaka is also wanted for an armed robbery at the Pumba Service Station in Kuisebmond in September last year.
The public’s assistance is requested to get these thugs off the streets. Should you have any information on their whereabouts, contact Detective Chief Inspector Johannes Mwatongwe at 081 246 1121 or Detective Warrant Officer Sam Shitima at 081 304 9064 or report at your nearest police station.
