Four armed men rob café of R1000

A take away shop in Orange Grove is one of the latest targets in the business robbery crimes along Louis Botha Avenue in the suburb.


Norwood police have launched a manhunt after four armed robbers stormed into a café and takeaway shop in Orange Grove and took R1 000 from the till.

The incident took place on 13 July at a café situated along Louis Botha Avenue.

According to Norwood police spokesperson Captain Elliot Tshivhase, the four robbers entered the café, pointed a gun at a cashier and ordered the latter to hand over all the cash in the till.

“As he was threatened, the complainant gave them the money claiming it amounting to R1 000,” said Tshivhase. No shots were fired.

He said the suspects are unknown and the police have launched a manhunt. The suspects fled the scene but it is not known if they were on foot or had a getaway vehicle.
