Tourists from India fell victim to a group of robbers who pretended to be police officers in Johannesburg at the weekend.

The tourists were travelling on the M2 on a tour bus on Saturday when two men, dressed as police offices, stopped the bus and boarded.

Police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo said  that the two suspects robbed the driver of R800, and made off with around $700 and four cellphones from the tourists, before speeding off in an unmarked white VW Polo.
