Armed robbery at Gauteng hospital

2011-03-28 15:42

Johannesburg - An undisclosed amount of cash was stolen in an armed robbery at Netcare Linksfield Hospital on Monday morning, police said.

"This morning three males entered the hospital on the pretence that they were there to consult a doctor," said Captain Phillip Maganedisa.

He said it appeared that the men were waiting for a female employee who usually collected cash from the pharmacy to bank it.

When the woman appeared at the pharmacy at 09:00, one of the men withdrew a pistol and demanded the money. The men then ran towards the exit, pointing their guns at the unarmed security guard.

The security guard told police that the three jumped into a white bakkie and drove away. The guard was unable to get the registration number.

Netcare could not immediately be reached for comment.
