Sun City casino robbed

2010-02-05 19:04
Johannesburg - Sun City casino in Rustenburg was robbed of an undisclosed amount of money by 10 heavily armed men on Thursday night, North-West police said on Friday.

"They entered the casino at 23:50 and ordered the cashier to give them money from the till and a small safe... they then fired two shots and fled," spokesperson Wilmarie van der Merwe said.

A security guard barricaded the exit, but the men managed to drive through.

They allegedly shot at another security guard on a motorcycle, wounding him.

The man was in a stable condition in hospital.

"As the men drove off on the Sun City - Pretoria road, other security guards chased after [them].

"The men stopped and opened fire. A shoot-out ensued... and the men fled. No-one was injured in that shoot-out," she said.

Two of the four vehicles allegedly used in the robbery were found abandoned.
