A man has been arrested at the Fan Fest in Cape Town for claiming to be in possession of a bomb, Cape Town police said on Wednesday.
"The suspect mentioned to the security guard that he has a bomb in his possession," said Captain Ezra October.
"The allegation made was investigated and proved to be not true."
He said the 36-year-old man had entered the Grand Parade Fan Fest on Tuesday night and refused to be searched by security.
He was arrested and would appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, on charges of contravening the Explosives Act. - Sapa
