Ekurhuleni police are looking for armed men who have allegedly attacked a truck driver and fled with alcohol which he was carrying. As the Ekurhuleni Central cluster’s Captain Nomsa Sekele said, the armed men were in their thirties.
“There were no shots fired during the robbery and no injuries were reported. The estimated value of the alcohol taken is unknown at this stage and we have not made any arrests,” Sekele said.
As it follows from the police’s official data, the men threatened the truck driver and his crew with firearms and then connected the trailer to their own vehicle and fled from the scene. The incident took place at the parking of a depot in Van Eck Park, Brakpan.
It is also known that the suspects fled in a Toyota Corolla and an unknown truck. The local police department urged citizens to contact the crime stop line 08600 10111 or their nearest police station if they can assist with any information about the criminals.
