Johannesburg - Two Johannesburg men were arrested on Saturday in Soweto for allegedly brandishing firearms and robbing people in a park, metro police said.

The men, aged between their late 20s and early 30s, were arrested at the Mofolo park, said JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar.

"Officers were alerted that three men carrying firearms were robbing people in the park of their belongings.

"Two of the suspects started shooting at the officers, who returned fire."

One of the men got away and was still at large, Minnaar said.

The two other men were found in possession of a pistol and cellphones.

They will appear in court on robbery charges on Monday.
