“It is alleged that an armed suspect entered the bank, shot a security guard in the hand, and took two bags of cash before fleeing the scene,” Lt-Col Khensani Magoai said.

Four other people joined the robber outside the branch of Nedbank and the group then fled the scene in a Toyota Hilux double cab.

“The suspects fired randomly in Mayfair but no one was injured,” Magoai said.

The security guard was treated on the scene by paramedics.
