Three men have been arrested by police on Monday, after they robbed a man of undisclosed amount of money, at gunpoint outside a bank at Vangate Mall near Athlone.

The incident occurred at 10:15am when three armed men robbed the man while he was on his way to make a large cash deposit.

“The suspects fled in a blue VW Jetta. The police spotted the vehicle and pulled off in the Gugulethu area,” says police spokesperson Elliot Sinyangana.

A shoot out occurred between the suspects and police and a high speed car chase ensued.

“As the suspects sped into Gugulethu, they fired several shots at the police,” says Sinyangana. He added that, no one was injured during the incident.

A fourth suspect is still at large.

The suspects will appear in the Athlone Magistrates Court on Wednesday July, 25.

Anyone with information about the fourth suspect should call Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
