THREE men aged between 28 and 40 appeared in the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday facing robbery charges.

They were arrested on Monday after they allegedly robbed a victim of an undisclosed amount of cash at Oribi Plaza.

According to police, the victim was at Oribi Plaza to deposit cash in the bank. As she was about to enter the bank, she was approached by two men who allegedly sprayed her with unknown substance and took cash, a bank register, and a cheque of R1 000 before fleeing the scene in a VW Polo.

According to police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala, local police were immediately alerted and started to search for the getaway vehicle, which was spotted not far from the area. The police arrested one suspect who was inside the vehicle. Two suspects managed to flee the scene on foot but were also later arrested by the police officers.

The stolen cash as well as bank register and cheque were recovered from the suspects.
