Police are investigating a case of business robbery after three men stormed a pizza restaurant in Mayfair, Johannesburg on Tuesday.
Video footage of the incident shows the men move behind the counter and search one of the staff members, before ransacking the cash register.
One of the business partners who spoke to News24 said the men came through the front door around 20:15.
"They told them to lie down and they took the money," he said.
Chenayi Machengo, a cashier at the outlet, said only one of the men had a gun.
"I was so scared," she said.
Brixton police spokesperson Jeanette Backhoff said the men made off with R1 350.
None of the staff members were injured in the incident, but the business owner said some of them were traumatised.
He said the staff met with a therapist on Wednesday morning before they opened business.
