About 2 days ago at 2:30 am a barking dog alerted a resident to an intruder.  The resident shouted and the intruder exited the property.  The resident thinks the intruder was trying to break into a car.  The bizarre thing about this incident was the intruder jumped on a bicycle and rode away.  We do have some video of this but it is too grainy to offer any meaningful descriptions.
It is very unusual for anyone to be riding a bike around at this time.  If you see someone riding a bike very late at night or in the early hours of the morning please report this immediately to Mamba.
Remember to always maintain a high level of awareness, especially when you are leaving or entering your home/driveway.  Please tell your family and domestic workers to also be on the lookout.  Report all suspicious behaviour to Mamba control room (tel number below) and warn the residents using @ESRCAlert.
