Three men have been arrested following a botched robbery at a cellphone shop in the Cape Town CBD on Monday, Western Cape police said.

Four men entered the shop and held the owners and customers at gunpoint, Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana said. People outside noticed a commotion in the shop and caught three of the men. Police found two cellphones, a gun and ammunition in their possession. The fourth man fled in a white Toyota Etios. Nobody was hurt.

The three were expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court soon on charges of business robbery.
