    National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said Igshaan Fisher, Jason Abrahams, Vanroy Petersen, Carlo Guenantin and Melvin Guenantin are charged with robbery with aggravating circumstances.
    “They were found in possession of items belonging to German national Nick Frischke,” said the NPA spokesperson.
    The matter has been postponed to 6 March 2023 for further investigation. The suspects are remanded in custody.
    As previously reported, the Hout Bay Community Policing Forum (CPF) confirmed that the cellphone and backpack of missing German tourist Nick Frischke had been recovered.
    According to the CPF’s Facebook post, three suspects appeared in court on Monday for robbing Frischke, and two more were expected to appear on Tuesday. The suspects allegedly admitted to robbing the tourist.
    Unfortunately, there the 22-year-old remains nowhere to be found.
    “The victim’s backpack and cellphone were recovered, as well as a knife. Despite intensive questioning and following up on information from the suspects, there is still no sign of the missing hiker. [The] SAPS Investigation continues,” said the CPF.
    In the comments of Tuesday’s post, a man claiming to be Frischke’s father lamented that the family is receiving important updates about the case from the media and social media. “It would certainly be helpful for us parents to talk to us beforehand. We still hope that it will end well!!!” wrote Andre Hallwas.
    The CPF responded to the comment and apologised on behalf of the police service. “We will be in contact with the police today to request that the investigating officer be in contact with yourselves”
    Hallwas said police communication has gotten worse over the past few days.
    As previously reported, the German tourist’s ID document was found in Hangberg, Hout Bay, last week. Frischke was last seen in the Hout Bay area. It is believed that he attempted to hike one of the trails in the area alone.
