One suspect has been apprehended in connection with a robbery that took place at the N1 City Mall in Goodwood on Tuesday.
A group of three men entered the mall and robbed the Jet store at gunpoint, taking cash and cellphones. The stolen wares were put into two suitcases, but the suspects dumped these at one of the mall’s entrances as police arrived and they fled the scene.
“On Tuesday 18 December 2018, at approximately 11:30, three men, one armed, robbed N1 City Mall’s Jet store. No one was injured and no shots were fired. N1 City Mall security responded to the incident. The SA Police Services were immediately contacted and are currently investigating the matter. The remainder of the centre is, however, trading as normal,” N1 City Mall said to News24.
The two remaining suspects are still at large, while the man who was apprehended now faces charges of business robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.
