Rob­bers hit Ke­nil­worth Pick n Pay

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS - WEEK­END AR­GUS RE­PORTER

PO­LICE are try­ing to track down three rob­bers who, armed with an axe and knives, held up staff at a Ke­nil­worth Pick n Pay and locked them in a re­frig­er­a­tor yes­ter­day.

The in­ci­dent un­folded at about 5.50am.

Yes­ter­day po­lice spokesman Cap­tain Fred­er­ick van Wyk said the three rob­bers walked into the shop and threat­ened staff with knives and an axe.

“They robbed the staff of cell­phones and locked them in a walk-in fridge and forced the man­ager to open the safe. When the man­ager couldn’t open the safe they took car­tons of cig­a­rettes and fled,” he said.

No one was in­jured dur­ing the in­ci­dent, and no ar­rests were made.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent should call CrimeStop on 08600 10111.
