Robbers ambush business owner

A liquor store owner had a brush with death when he was dragged from his car, manhandled and had two weapons pointed at his head when robbed by four men.

The businessman had his car keys and about R120 000 in cash taken from him on Monday 10 September. He had been on his way to do a delivery transaction when three robbers approached him on foot early that morning.

Police spokesperson Capt Louise du Plessis said the businessman allegedly wanted to pay for a delivery at a business in Masala Street, Paarl.

“Three unknown males entered the premises and pointed a firearm at him,” he said. “They then forced him to his knees, searched him and fled with the money and the keys.

Paarl Post was on the scene shortly afterwards, but was instructed by police to leave.

The victim declined to comment, but a confidential source said one of the robbers was wearing a yellow reflector bib and waited on the corner of Aurora and Masala Street. They said two other robbers were sitting on a step at a neighbouring shop, while another sat in a car in a vacant parking area nearby.

The source said when the victim had driven around the corner from Aurora Street into Masala Street, the three robbers approached him on foot while the driver brought the vehicle closer.

When the victim came to a standstill on the premises of Bevdirect, two of the robbers pointed firearms at him and handled him roughly. They then grabbed his car keys, took the money and fled the scene. No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information is requested to contact Paarl police on 021 807 4014 or 079 894 1706.
