Further details have revealed that four vehicles were involved in the attempted cash-in-transit heist.
An eyewitness confirmed that a Toyota Fortuner, a white BMW, a white VW caddy and a white Ford Fiesta ST were all involved.
Another eyewitness, Shawn Gerhadus Greyling, who drove past the scene shortly after the incident confirmed that several roads had been closed to traffic.
“It looked as though the Ford Fiesta STI had clipped a grey Toyota Corolla. Both cars were left vacant on the scene. Oak Avenue, towards Republic Road, as well as George Street were closed off,” said Greyling.
According to ER24, the male suspect in his 30’s who sustained head injuries died on the scene.
” The armed robbers abandoned two of the vehicles they were travelling in, in close proximity to the scene leaving the deceased suspect in one of the cars before hijacking another vehicle and fleeing the scene,” said Tebogo Magoro, ER24’s Communication Officer.
The female driver of the hijacked vehicle escaped unharmed.
