Milnerton police tell woman that station is “closed on weekends”

"I asked if anyone was going to take fingerprints and she said no it takes too long."

A Milnerton woman has reported local cops after she was told that the police station was “closed on weekends” while trying to report a burglary.

Deborah Boyes, 48, says she caught a suspect in her bedroom on Sunday and tried to report the incident to the police. She discovered the suspect after she woke up around 6 am in the morning.

When Deborah confronted the suspect, he jumped out of her bedroom window and ran down the street.

She tried to chase him, but lost sight of him and went to the police station.

At the station Deborah says she was asked a few questions by a female officer and told the station is closed on weekends.

“I asked if anyone was going to take fingerprints and she said no it takes too long.”

“She just put the forms away and started with the next person.”

“I just want to cry all the time and it was shocking that there was no response or interest from the police.”

Police spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk, says the issue is being taken seriously and is under investigation by the station commander.
