Cou­ple robbed in cin­ema

The Herald (South Africa) - - NEWS - Naledi Shange

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.
