The money was placed in a laptop bag.

At about 3.25pm, the two were held up in a parking lot of a local shopping centre.

Sekele said the men, one of whom was armed, made their getaway in a car.

A case of robbery with a firearm has been opened.

Police have in the past warned members of the public not to withdraw large sums of money from banks, as it posed a risk to their safety.
