Johannesburg – Two cash-in-transit guards were shot and wounded during a robbery in Randburg in Johannesburg on Tuesday afternoon, Gauteng police said.

The two Fidelity guards were collecting money from a business at the corner of Pretoria and Retail streets at about 15:00 when three men confronted them, Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said.

The thieves shot the guards, took their cash boxes and fled in a VW Passat. The guards were taken to hospital in a serious, but stable condition.

No members of the public were injured, and the guards’ firearms were not taken.
