Montague Drive | Armed Robbery.
At 20:10 on 10th January, 2018 our Control Room received a Panic from a client in Montague Gardens that there had just been an armed robbery at the premises. Armed Response Officers Thembela Nqikela, Richard Devine and Matthew Speelman were dispatched. The Manager reported that 5 males had entered the premises with fire arms and knives and robbed the patrons of cell phones and valuables including handbags and wallets. They were seen to be leaving in a White Quantum Taxi in direction of Joe Slovo. Control Room contacted 10111 and SAPS arrived at 20:23. The patrons had been held hostage for more than 15 minutes before the Panic was able to be pressed. Undisclosed amount of money was also taken from the till and safes. A case has been opened and an ongoing investigation is under way.
