THE police are looking for three men in connection with an armed robbery at a petrol service station in Eastwood on Monday.

The detectives at the Mountain Rise police station have made an urgent appeal to the public for information regarding the whereabouts of the three men pictured at left.

SAPS spokeswoman Inspector Joey Jeevan said the three men can assist the police in their investigation of an armed robbery that occurred at Ron Fraser Garage in Eastwood.

It is alleged that the three entered the shop at the garage and held staff at gunpoint.

One man entered the shop and ordered the teller to lie on the floor. He was followed by two other men, also armed with guns, and they ordered the rest of the staff to lie down.

“The suspects then removed cellphones from the staff, an undisclosed amount of cash from the till, airtime and cigarettes,” said Jeevan.

Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of these men can contact Detective Inspector Bheki Langa at 033 387 9600 or 078 712 4199.

Anonymous callers should contact Crime Stop toll-free at 08600 10111.
