Yesterday, a cash-in-transit heist on Malibongwe Drive, near the R114, just outside of Cosmo City, ended with a huge fire which destroyed the robbed van and a nearby car.
According to police spokesperson Col Brenda Muridili, several armed men attacked the cash-in-transit van at around 6pm blowing off its back doors. They then ordered the crew to lie on the ground.
After loading an undisclosed amount of money into two cars, the perpetrators set the van and the light motor vehicle on fire and fled the scene.
“The driver and guard in the rear of the van are alleged to have been assaulted by the suspects and have suffered minor injuries. They were treated on scene before being transported to a private hospital in Fourways,” ER24’s Ross Campbell reported.
The police are looking for the suspects.
