16 July 2010, 11:45
A group of armed men held up staff and blasted open an ATM at a supermarket in Nuffield, Springs on Friday, Gauteng police said.
"The men made the shop staff and customers lie down while they stole money from the tills and bombed the FNB ATM," said spokesperson Captain Johannes Ramphora.
The group, estimated to be in their twenties, robbed the Buyrite Supermarket around 8pm. No one was hurt, but the shop's property including counters, tills, windows and stock were "extremely damaged".
"We have arrested no suspects and have no leads yet, but we know that the getaway car they used is a white, C-Class Mercedes Benz."
Ramphora did not know how much money was taken from the tills or the ATM. - Sapa
