Aby­stander was re­port­edly in­jured dur­ing a cashin-tran­sit heist in Hill­brow on Thurs­day af­ter­noon. Ac­cord­ing to Emerg-G-Med paramedics‚ the civil­ian and a se­cu­rity guard were in­jured in the at­tack. The guard was re­ported to be in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion. Pic­tures posted on so­cial me­dia sug­gested that it was a Fi­delity truck that was tar­geted.

Emer-G-Med’s Jur­gen Kotze says, “We sadly found one po­lice mem­ber was de­ceased on ar­rival. A few min­utes af­ter that we were alerted to a se­cond in­ci­dent in Pre­to­ria Street in Hill­brow where a cash-in-tran­sit heist was tak­ing place. All units ar­rived lit­er­ally within min­utes still when the scene was pretty hot.” It was not im­me­di­ately clear whether any cash had been taken. An up­date from the po­lice could not be sourced be­fore the pa­per went for print.
