POLICE at Bishopstowe SAPS are looking for the man in the identikit in connection with the house robbery.

On Saturday, March 16 at about 10.30 pm, the complainant was selling liquor at Mandledlozi tavern when an African male approached him pretending to be a customer.

That man suddenly drew a firearm and pointed it at the complainant, demanding that he open the gate that separated the customers and the staff.

The complainant opened the gate and the person in the identikit entered the staff area.

The suspect was then joined by another three African males who came with him.

They demanded money at gun point and took an undisclosed amount of cash from the till, airtime and bottles of alcohol from the stock.

They then fled on foot. Nobody was injured and no shots were fired.

A case of Business robbery was opened at Bishopstowe as per CAS 25/03/2019. — Supplied.
