Cresta Shopping Centre in Randburg, Johannesburg, has pleaded with members of the public to come forward if they have any information about the armed robbery that took place at Edgars Connect on Monday.

The matter is being investigated by the Linden Police station.

Three suspects fled the scene in two getaway cars – a white Toyota Corolla and silver Hyundai i20, with fake registration plates.

Police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo said that shots were fired in the parking area at Cresta.

A staff member from a nearby store noticed suspicious activity in and around the Edgars Connect store and alerted Cresta security and management, said Cresta general manager Virginia Bester.

No civilians were hurt and the suspects got away with unknown merchandise.
