Store robbed, staff locked up

An armed robber held up staff and customers at the Pep Store in Strand on Thursday 1 October and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.

According to one of the first responders on the scene, a man who entered the store with a mask first sanitised his hands at the entrance before proceeding to a teller and pretended to be interested in purchasing airtime.

“A customer said that just moments later the man pulled out a firearm and started waving it around,” the responder said. “He demanded the cashier fill a bag with money and ordered everyone to lie on the floor.”

He then took the shop keys from the manager and locked everyone in the store before fleeing. It is unclear whether the man was acting alone or if a getaway vehicle was also involved.

Police are investigating the incident but no arrests had been made.
