Woolworths robbers caught on CCTV

A gang of nine armed robbers held up one of Woolworths's flagship city
stores in the Gardens Centre on Monday evening, holding shoppers and
employees at gunpoint.

Police will on Wednesday release pictures of the nine robbers, who were
captured on CCTV cameras at the centre.

Spokesperson Randall Stoffels said the men had stormed into the shop just
before closing time and stolen money and two cellphones.

He said the suspects had held up a security guard at the entrance of the
shop at gunpoint before running inside, where they held employees and
customers at gunpoint.

The centre is popular with foreign tourists who rent the holiday flats in
its tower block, and callers to the Cape Times said several foreigners were
among those held up.

Two cellphones were stolen, as well as an undisclosed amount of money from
the cash registers.

Woolworths' press office said even though no one was injured, five
customers and a number of employees had been counselled afterwards.

Anyone with information may call CrimeStop on 08600 10111 and police may
offer a reward.
