2016-02-09 06:00

A Pep store in Retreat Road was robbed by three unknown men on Wednesday last week in broad daylight and during business hours.

A 54-year-old worker at the shop told police three men entered the shop. One of the men came to her and pointed a firearm at her.

The robber demanded cash and forced the worker to open the till and the safe.

The suspects took cash of about R11 000 from the safe.

They fled the scene in a black VW Polo with registration number CA 738 636. The registration number was tested and found to be false.

Jan Alexander, Steenberg police station commander, confirms the incident.

The firearms used were handguns and no shots were fired.

The robbers are still at large.

A case of business robbery was opened for investigation, Alexander says.

Anyone with information is requested to contact Steenberg police on 021 702 9000 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
