A cash-in-transit heist took place in Ravensmead on Tuesday morning when a Coin Security cash-van collecting money in the area was forced to a standstill.

According to a press statement released by the South African Police Service, a Ford Bantam rammed into the cash van.

"A group of 6-8 unknown armed men attacked the cash van by firing several shots wounding one security officer in the leg," says police spokesperson Siphokazi Mawisa.

"The suspects opened the back of the van and took cash-boxes containing an undisclosed amount of money. They then fled the scene in two different vehicles," says Mawisa.

The suspects are still at large. Anyone with information can contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

Coin Security were unavailable for comment.
