Durban - KwaZulu-Natal police are probing a cash-in-transit robbery at a petrol station in one of Durban’s most sought after suburbs on Monday morning.

Armed security guards had been collecting money from the petrol station on North Ridge Road in Musgrave when they were accosted by a group of gunmen.

The robbery was effected without a single shot fired, contrary to another heist at the same petrol station last year when gunmen sprayed the façade with automatic gunfire.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Nqobile Gwala said detectives were investigating a case of business robbery.

"It is alleged that security guards were accosted by two suspects while they were collecting cash in one of the service stations.

"The suspects made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and a 9mm pistol. No arrests have been made at this stage," she said.
