Mpumalanga Police say three Italians have been arrested after they allegedly tried to steal cash form a hardware store in KwaMhlanga yesterday.

Two brothers, aged 27 and 35, and the wife of the older brother, went to the store and pretended to be customers.

According to police the couple entered the shop while the other man waited outside.

While the store owner assisted the wife, her husband stormed into the pay-point room a few metres away, where he demanded cash from the owner’s teenage son.

A scuffle ensued after the father confronted the man.

According to police other customers and members of the community came to the owner’s rescue and the three suspects were taken into the yard where they were allegedly beaten.
