When we went to the local DVD store this evening, the friendly young man behind the counter told us that there was another armed robbery at the Spar somewhere around 3pm this afternoon.
And unlike last time, this time they got away with R20,000.
The details are a bit sketchy. Apparently there were 6 robbers in a white bakkie, and all of them were armed. The security guard ran away. One of the cashiers, who had witnessed the last robbery three weeks ago had some sort of a fit. At least one of the robbers was recognised as being there the last time, so it seems to have been the same syndicate.
Thank heavens, nobody was shot or hurt.
P.S. On Tuesday morning, it was reported in the Cape Argus.
