Armed robbers hit another fuel station in Hartbeespoort

According to information the three robbers stopped at the Sasol fuel station in Van der Hoff Road around 02:30 on Tuesday morning supposedly to fill up their vehicle.
“They then grabbed the petrol attendant, forced him into the shop and told staff to lie down on the ground. The cashier, who saw them approaching, locked herself in the bathroom,” said Romano van der Spuy, chairman of the Hartbeespoort community policing forum.
The robbers took the till with an undisclosed amount of cash, cigarettes, cellphones and various goods from the shop before locking the staff members in a room and fleeing in their vehicle.
No one was injured and the victims could not identify the vehicle make and number plate.
This is the second armed robbery at a fuel station in the area. Three armed robbers stormed the MBT fuel station in Schoemansville last Friday, using the same modus operandi and fled with the till, cigarettes and other stolen items.
