They then broke into Clicks and stole thousands of rands of expensive perfumes. The police, neighbourhood watch and security companies arrived on the scene within minutes but the robbers had already fled. One of the guards described the getaway vehicle as a silver or grey sedan. According to Remano van der Spuy of the Hartbeespoort Community Policing Forum it appears that this was the same gang that robbed the CNA and a cellphone shop four weeks ago, when goods to the value of R200 000 was stolen in a similar fashion.

Earlier this month four armed robbers held a manager of the Sediba Plaza at gunpoint, assaulted him and fired random shots into the air shortly before closing time. The robbers fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

In two other incidents an elderly lady was attacked in the parking lot of Village Mall in an apparent attempt to steal her handbag and a man was assaulted in the parking area of Sediba plaza and robbed of his golden chain and wedding ring.
