A garage shop on Old Strandfontein Road in Schaapkraal was hit for the sixth time by armed robbers today (15 May). 

Philippi police spokesperson, Captain Lance Goliath, says the incident occurred at 07:20 at the Yusuf Superette at the Caltex garage. 

He says two male suspects, one of whom was armed, entered the store and demanded cash. They took R300 from plastic containers, 15 chocolates and 20 packets of cigarettes before fleeing the scene on foot. 

Goliath says no shots were fired and the men covered their faces during the robbery. Police also say the store has been robbed five times previously.
