“We can confirm that two incidents of explosions occurred last night [Thursday] just after 11pm – one in Belgravia Road, Athlone… and the other one at the corner of Jan Smuts and Kromboom roads,” Captain Frederick Van Wyk said.

One was a motor dealership and the other was a small business centre.

“Cases of malicious damage to property were opened for investigation, [but there are] no arrests as yet,” he said.

Van Wyk said there were no reports of injuries or fatalities.
