Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said a G4S security guard was robbed of a box full of money shortly after he collected it from the Pick n Pay at the Protea Glen shopping complex.
“Two men pointed a firearm at him as he was about to get into the van. They took the box as well as his firearm,” said Makhubela.
The robbers fled the scene in a green Volkswagen Golf.
No shots were fired and no one was injured in the robbery.
Makhubela said it was unclear how much money was taken.
A case of armed robbery was being investigated.
