According to police spokesperson Stephen Thakeng, the robbers attacked Xiu Hua Huang, 39, and his wife, Me Xue Yau Huang, on Saturday evening.
The robbers thought the couple carried the containers with day’s takings of the shop, but there were meat and vegetables.
They started shooting at the victim’s vehicle. Xiu started shooting back.
The robbers fled the scene in a Hyundai Getz.
They were later arrested by the police officers. The perpetrators were found in possession of unlicensed firearms, unlicensed ammunition, three hand radio chargers, one hand radio, and a pepper spray.
One of the suspects tried to bribe the officers with R20, 000. The suspects are expected to appear in court.
