Clothing store robbed

A clothing store in Village Mall was robbed of over 100 expensive cellphones and jeans during a robbery on Thursday, 22 October.

“Three men walked into the store around 13:50 and told staff members it was a robbery. They forced them into the office and while one kept an eye on them, the others packed 112 cellphones, 20 jeans and cash from the till into boxes and then fled,” said Romano van der Spuy, chairman of the Hartbeespoort community policing forum.

The cellphones were later traced and a suspect was arrested in connection with the robbery.
