A cash-in-transit van was targeted and attacked by a group of armed suspects in Tembisa on Saturday. The incident has prompted a large-scale manhunt by the Gauteng police as they strive to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The incident took place on Montjane Street in Liliba Section, Tembisa. As the G4S vehicle was driving along the street, a white Mercedes Benz C-Class suddenly rammed into the cash van from the rear right side. Within moments, seven suspects emerged from the vehicle and began shooting at the guards, forcing them out of the van.
Once the guards were out of the van, the suspects proceeded to bomb the vehicle. Fortunately, no one was injured in the attack, but the criminals managed to escape with an undisclosed amount of money in a white single-cab Ford Ranger, registered in Limpopo.
During the commotion, one of the G4S guards was also robbed of his 9mm pistol, adding to the seriousness of the incident. The Gauteng police have confirmed that an investigation is currently underway to apprehend the suspects and recover the stolen money.
