A 36 year old man from Philippi has been detained for questioning in connection with the armed robbery that occurred at the Kenilworth Shopping Centre on Sunday.

Police say the man went to the Gugulethu police station early yesterday morning to report that he was robbed of his licensed firearm in Lansdowne on Saturday.

“He alleged that three unknown men robbed him at gun point of his 9mm pistol, while he was walking on his way home. He did not sustain any injuries during the alleged incident,” said police spokesperson Inspector November Filander.

Inspector Filander adds the same firearm was confiscated by police at the armed robbery scene on Sunday.

“The 36 year old is not charge for any crime at this stage, but is only detained for questioning. If he is found to be linked to the Kenilworth robbery, he could face an additional charge of perjury relating the possible false case of robbery of his firearm,” said Filander.

The investigation continues.
