Security guard killed in Stellenbosch robbery

Police are searching for a gang of armed robbers who fatally wounded a security guard during a cash heist in Stellenbosch on Friday. The security guard was collecting money from a service station when five men accosted him. The robbers fired several shots, wounding the guard in the chest and arm and he later died en route to hospital. Police spokesperson Randall Stoffels says the robbers hijacked a vehicle at the service station and made off with the cash. The hijacked vehicle was found a short while later, and a search has been launched for the gang.

Still in the Cape, two people will appear in court on Monday after they were caught in possession of an illegal weapons cache. Police raided the house in Heinz Park in Cape Town, following a tip-off from the public. Police discovered several weapons, including a shotgun and a homemade gun, on the premises, as well as several rounds of ammunition.
