Based on information received, the incident occurred around 03:00 hrs on Sunday morning as the two elderly watchmen were on duty.
The armed bandits held the security officials at gunpoint before proceeding to a section of the two-storey business and gained access to the safe in which money was kept. They then removed the safe, resulting in an alarm being triggered.
As such, armed ranks attached to the contracted security service arrived promptly, resulting in a brief “shoot out” with the bandits.
However, the perpetrators managed to flee the scene, leaving no one injured.
Investigations are ongoing.
