Armed business robbery suspect shot, Wynberg

The quick response of Wynberg police was not what four armed robbers expected when they targeted a Chinese Shop on the morning of 26 October 2017.

At about 08:00 the robbers fled the scene of crime in a silver VW Polo with an undisclosed amount of cash after holding the owners of the shop at gunpoint.

Their path crossed with police who were quick to react on the call, and following a brief pursuit, the robbers abandoned their vehicle and fled further on foot. Two of the suspects, aged 25 and 41, were arrested and the stolen cash was retrieved.

The getaway vehicle was also confiscated. The 25 year old suspect sustained a gunshot wound and is being treated for his injury. The two suspects who managed to evade an arrest are being sought.

Once charged, the arrested suspects are due to make a court appearance in Wynberg on a charge of business robbery.
