Couple robbed in cinema
A DATE night went horribly wrong for a Johannesburg couple who claim they were robbed at The Zone in Rosebank as they watched a movie at the Ster-Kinekor cinema at the weekend.
“Was robbed during a movie at the Zone Rosebank. No security or management present to help‚” Giulietta Mazza wrote on her Facebook page.
It was not immediately clear how Mazza and her fiance, Darren Craig, had been robbed. A social media post attributed to him was shared on Twitter in which he asserts a gang of five men robbed them.
But the movie company has contradicted some of the couple’s claims.
“Our investigation so far has found that it was not a group of people‚ but rather one individual who stole the customers’ belongings‚” Ster-Kinekor said in a statement.
Ster-Kinekor took to their social media pages where they said the safety of customers remained a priority.
Sergeant Bonginkosi Mdletshe, of the Rosebank Police Station, said the couple’s cellphones and a wallet had been taken.
