ROBBERS stole R30 000 in cash from Galleria Shopping Mall last Friday.

“The complainant states that he withdrew R20 000 cash from Standard bank and he had R10 000 cash in his possession. He went up the escalator and when he reached the top, an unknown black male dropped a roll of money. “Another guy then came from behind the complainant and pushed him. He picked up the money and suggested to the complainant that they share the money,” Captain Charlene van der Spuy said.

The victim was then reportedly taken into the parking lot to a white Etios, registration unknown. He was then threatened with a firearm. He was instructed to get inside the car where they then robbed him at gunpoint of the R30 000 cash. The suspects are unknown. - Supplied.
