Ashton spaza shop robbed

Two cases of business robbery are being investigated by Ashton police after two separate incidents of armed robbery over the past week.

On Monday 28 October at about 21:15 three unknown black males entered Ashton Mini market in Coronation Ave, Ashton. “They immediately went behind the counter and pointed a firearm at the cashier and demanded him to lay down,” said Ashton police spokesperson WO Sylvester Joseph. “The other workers were also instructed to lay down where after all the cash and two cell phones were taken.”

According to Joseph the three suspects fled the scene on foot. “No shots were fired. No injuries and no arrests were made. The value of the stolen goods is R37 000. [The Local Criminal Record Centre (LCRC)] and all other role players were on the scene.”

The second incident occurred on Saturday 2 November at about 21:50 at Vuyani Supermarket, a spaza shop, located on the corner of Mantlana and Dudumashe Streets, Zolani, Ashton.

“The owner and one customer were in the shop when three unknown black males entered the shop,” said Joseph. “One was dressed on a green hoody, the second one in an overall (colour not known) and the third in a hoody and cap. On entering the shop one of the three pointed a gun at the complainant and ordered them to lie down, which they did.

“He noticed one of them was in possession of a knife. They threatened the owner and robbed him of approximately R4 000, a cellphone, cooldrinks and two [cartons] of cigarettes to the value of R2 000. The total value of the items stolen is approximately R6 000.”

Joseph said the three suspects fled the shop on foot. “No shots were fired. Nobody got injured. All role players were contacted and were on the scene.”

Anyone with information on the robberies is requested to contact the investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Llewellyn Cupido on 023 615 8120.
