Hawks seek assistance on cash in transit robbery suspects

WESTERN CAPE The Hawks’ National Priority Violent Crimes (NPVC) appeals to the public to come forward with information that would lead to the arrest of the suspects implicated in a cash in transit robbery.

Three unknown suspects approached and disarmed the G4S crew member who stood guard at entrance of the fast food outlet, at Viking petrol service station in Epping, near Elsies River in the early hours of the 11th February 2019. A shock trolley cash bag was taken containing an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspects fled the scene in a getaway vehicle.

The armoured vehicle gave chase and the driver fired few shots whilst no sustained injuries were reported. The suspects fled on foot after abandoning the getaway vehicle approximately a thousand meters away from the crime scene. Anyone with credible information that would ensure the arrest of the gunmen should contact the Hawks’ Investigating Officer, Sergeant Ludwe Mzana on 082 559 4689.
