A gang struck at a pension pay-out point in KwaZulu-Natal on Monday, and were seen fleeing with a substantial number of money bags, police said.

Police spokesperson Daniela Veldhuizen said the robbery took place at 7.56 at a community hall in U Section, Umlazi.

"Around eight robbers entered the hall and held up people. Police are still at the scene."

She said no further details were available.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said a few people were treated at the scene for minor injuries as some had been pistol-whipped.

"No one was taken to hospital," said Botha. - Sapa
