Two staff were tied up in the robbery and discovered only after an alarm went off. The suspects had fled with a large amount of money.
According to police, “it was established that two male suspects entered the store at about 9.20am and threatened them with what is believed to be a firearm.
“The suspects then tied the victims’ wrists with tape before stealing a large quantity of mobile phones and cash.”
