According to Berdou, the suspects arrived in two separate vehicles and demanded money from the jewellery store’s staff stealing several thousands of rand.

He added that the suspects fled the scene in separate vehicles and headed near Cosmo City area.

“No shots were fired and the jewellery store’s staff members were not injured,” Berdou said.

Natalie Kinsley, marketing manager of Northgate Shopping Centre said, “The jewellery store staff member pressed the store’s panic button which alerted the shopping centre’s security who contacted Honeydew police. They arrived on the scene immediately and started investigating.”

She added that the shopping centre is running back to normal.

When Fourways Review contacted Honeydew Police Station for comment, they stated that they are busy with thorough investigations on the crime scene.
