Athlone police confirm no arrests have been made in a robbery which took place at Vangate Mall on Tuesday 16 July.

They ask residents to help them find three suspects linked to a robbery at the Vodacom Store in Vangate Mall at 17:45.

According to Athlone police spokesperson, Sergeant Zita Norman, the suspects looted the shop and fled with 20 sealed boxes of cellphones and R7 000 cash.

“One man went around the counter and hit something against the side of the one employee who was shocked and did not know if it was a firearm or not. The rest of the men looted the shop. No shots were fired, and no injuries sustained,” says Norman.

She says no arrest has been made and is appealing to the public for help to find the suspects.
