Armed men make off with cash in Soweto


JOHANNESBURG – Seven armed men got away with an undisclosed amount of money after robbing a cash in transit vehicle in Soweto on Wednesday, police said. Captain Yolande Bouwer said a Fidelity vehicle stopped to collect cash at a hardware store at the corner of Union and Klip Valley roads in Kliptown, when the seven men confronted the security guards. All seven were armed, one with a rifle and the other six with handguns. They demanded cash and a firearm belonging to one of the security guards. The men fled with one cash box containing an undisclosed amount of money in two vehicles and abandoned a third vehicle. Bouwer said at this stage police did not believe that the abandoned vehicle was stolen. No shots were fired and no injuries were reported, she said. The seven men were still at large and police were investigating, she said. –Sapa
