AN 89-YEAR-OLD woman reported an armed robbery at Siyabonga Tavern in Bushy Vales, Marina Drive on Wednesday.

Phayre Mallo reported that two males, dressed in black, entered the tavern where she works and pointed firearms at her while searching the premises.

She says when they jumped behind the counter she ran out the tavern’s back door after efforts to stop them by hitting them with the tavern’s books, failed.

The suspects took airtime, 20 boxes of cigarettes and a TV remote control before fleeing the scene. Margate SAPS spokesperson said the robbery is under police investigation.

“We are investigating the case, we commend the woman’s bravery at her age and thankfully no one was harmed in the process,” said Mfeka
