Woman wanted in robbery case

2013-11-26 00:00

POLICE are urgently looking for a woman who may have information about a robbery at a clinic in Pietermaritzburg.

On November 18, the woman — posing as a patient — walked into the Maritzburg Family Clinic in Langalibalele Street. Shortly after her arrival, a man entered the clinic and produced a firearm.

Police said the woman then allegedly gestured to three other men waiting outside to enter the clinic.

One of the men pulled out a firearm, and held up the clinic staff. The robbers forced the victims into a back room where they made them lie on the floor before escaping with R1 000 in cash, a computer CPU and a Nokia cellphone.

Police have urged anyone who can assist them in the incident to contact Detective Warrant Officer Alastair Farrington on 033 845 2750 or 082 040 4135 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
