2011-10-26 19:25

Pretoria - A man arrested for a business robbery in Pretoria was released when his case was struck off the roll for further investigation, police said on Wednesday.

Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said the man was believed to be part of a group of six who stormed into Alis Electronics in Pretoria west on Sunday and demanded money from an office worker.

"Shots were fired between the robbers and the victim as they fled."

Dlamini could not confirm that the man was Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir's associate, Jason Domingos, as reported by SABC news.

Krejcir is out on R500 000 bail for allegedly defrauding an insurance company of R4.5m, using medical papers stating he had cancer.

Dlamini said a Toyota Hilux used by the robbers was found abandoned at Fountains Valley in Pretoria.

Preliminary investigations led police to the man in Sandton, Johannesburg.
