Johannesburg - There was a cash-in-transit robbery in Protea Glen, Soweto, on Tuesday morning, police said.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said a G4S security guard was robbed of a box full of money shortly after he collected it from the Pick n Pay at the Protea Glen shopping complex.

"Two men pointed a firearm at him as he was about to get into the van. They took the box as well as his firearm," said Makhubela.

The robbers fled the scene in a green Volkswagen Golf.

No shots were fired and no one was injured in the robbery.

Makhubela said it was unclear how much money was taken.

A case of armed robbery was being investigated.
