The suspects moved the staff members into a room and began looting.

Four suspects have robbed the Telkom shop in Springs Mall in Ekurhuleni on Tuesday morning,  Springs Advertiser reports.

The Telkom offices at the mall were robbed of iPhones and other equipment.

Police spokesperson Captain Johannes Ramphora says four men, two armed with firearms, stormed into the Telkom shop at about 10.40am. They informed staff members, who were attending to clients, to move to the store room.

“Two of the suspects then forced the staff and clients into the store room,” said Ramphora.

These two unarmed suspects stripped the store of its stock.
