According to reports, the police truck transporting the prisoners was ambushed by three armed men driving a silver Audi at the corner of Barry Marais and Rondebult streets in Brakpan on the East Rand.

Five of the six escapees were due at court for a Dawn Park case of business robbery, attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm, and the sixth escapee was due for his first appearance on a shoplifting case.

Police are continuing to search for the remaining four inmates.
