Two men were arrested after an attempted cash-in-transit heist at the Birch Acres Mall in Tembisa, east of Johannesburg, on Friday, Gauteng police said.
"About 10 men attempted to rob a security guard," said Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini. Police were called to the
scene and a shoot-out ensued. A security guard and one of the men were wounded in the shooting.
"A 9mm pistol and two firearms that the men took from a guard were recovered," said Dlamini. The
men's getaway vehicle, allegedly stolen in Midrand, was also recovered. Dlamini said police were still
on the look-out for six to seven men. The mall was closed temporarily.
