Three armed men robbed an Engen petrol station in Malvern, Durban, of an undisclosed amount of money on Wednesday morning.

The unknown men also took cigarettes and cellphones from members of staff.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane told News24 that the robbery occurred at about 01:15.

"The victim and his colleagues were on duty when three unidentified suspects entered. At gunpoint, the suspects allegedly forced them to lie on the floor," he said.

The suspects fled the scene in their getaway car. No shots were fired, said Zwane.

"A case of armed robbery is being investigated by Malvern SAPS. No arrests have been made," he added.
