No one has been arrested after a robbery – which was captured on CCTV footage – on Monday morning in the early morning hours at Naguil Cafe in Oudtshoorn.
Capt. Police spokesman Malcolm Pojie said the robbery was at about 1:20 p.m. The cafe is located at a gas station where you enter Oudtshoorn on the N12 from George’s side.
According to Pojie, a preliminary investigation shows that four unknown men entered the cafe after they forced open the door with a sharp piece of iron.
Some of the robbers were armed with a firearm and a panga.
“They threatened the shop assistant and two petrol attendants, tied them up and then took an unknown amount of cash from the cash register,” he says.
“They also poured a liter of milk on the counter before fleeing the scene.”
The Facebook page Oudtshoorn Crime Watch has posted the circuit television video on which the robbery can be seen.
As the robbers ran away in the direction of Oudtshoorn’s neighborhoods, a fifth person joined them. No one has been arrested yet.
