On 18 April 2013, Patrolman Jose Lourenço was on night duty at the Barloworld Equipamentos Guesthouse in Caponte, Lobito.  

At about 01h47, he detected movements at the front of the residence and went to investigate.

Patrolman Lourenço detected and apprehended an unknown person who entered the premisses illegally. He then called for assistance and managed to detain the latter until the Police arrived.
