Johannesburg - CCTV footage has emerged of a heist that took place at a service garage in Johannesburg's west rand on 2 October.

According to the Randfontein Herald, a group of suspects robbed a G4S vehicle at the Brandvlei Crossing Caltex garage.

Two men –  one allegedly a suspect and the other a security guard -- were shot during a robbery at the garage.

One suspect later died due to his injuries while the security guard, who sustained a gunshot wound to the leg, survived.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene just after 1pm.

“Upon closer inspection, paramedics found the body of a man, believed to have been one of the suspects, lying in front of a security vehicle,” they said in a statement. “Nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead.”

The security guard was treated for his injuries and taken to Lenmed Randfontein for further treatment, they added.

The other suspects managed to escape in a getaway car with the bag of money.

A video has now been acquired by Krugersdorp News and it shows how the robbery took place.

In the CCTV footage, two men wearing black can be seen. One of the men carries a gun in one hand and drags a black bag with wheels, while the other follows closely behind him.

An Audi parks in front of the men and they try to climb into the alleged getaway car but just then a G4S van comes speeding towards them, almost knocking the two suspects, while it chases the Audi until it is out of sight.

The alleged robbers eventually get their hands on the bag of money and make it into the Audi before speeding off.

The Randfontein Police station communications office confirmed to YOU that none of the remaining suspects have yet been found, but police are still investigating the robbery.
