Weekend Post (South Africa) - - News - – Gareth Wil­son

The Sa­sol ser­vice sta­tion shop in Wil­liam Mof­fett Ex­press­way was robbed by three men pos­ing as cus­tomers at about 7.15pm on Thurs­day.

Po­lice spokesper­son War­rant Of­fi­cer Alwin La­bans said the 47-yearold cashier had been held at gun­point and forced to open the cash reg­is­ter.

“Two men walked into the shop and one walked to the back sec­tion of the store. The other walked to the cashier and pulled out a firearm.”

La­bans said an­other staff mem­ber had come from the back room to in­ves­ti­gate the noise and was also held at gun­point. A third sus­pect en­tered the store and helped with the rob­bery.

“The men grabbed the money and sped off in a red ve­hi­cle that was parked out­side,” he said.

A case of busi­ness rob­bery is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
