× WINDHOEK, 23 July 2014 - Two of three suspects who had terrorised residents of the Kleine Kuppe, Hochland Park and Pionierspark residential areas in Windhoek over the past two weeks, were arrested by the City Police on Tuesday. The suspects made use of a plastic bag filled with sand, which was rolled up and then used to break the windows of vehicles. Commonly known by criminals as 'Oboma' (bomb), this method makes it difficult for people nearby to hear a window being broken as the sand in the bag muffles the sound of the shattering glass.
