WATCH: BRAZEN petrol station armed robbery

WATCH: Robbery at 7am in the morning.

Still no scrap of information on three men who fled with an undisclosed amount of money after robbing Vuyos Garage in Rosettenville, South of Johannesburg on August 14.

A trio targeted the petrol station around 07am on the Monday and casually held store employees hostage.

The owner of the fuel station, Ashraf Hoosen said no arrests had been made to date by police.

Moffat View police was asked how far investigations were and they still haven’t responded.

In the video three men inconspicuously make their way into the filling station reception area only to point a firearm at the manager and employees.

According to Hoosen, the men calmly asked for the manager by name right before they demanded cash from the safe.

“One of the men was armed and pointed a firearm at the teller. The armed suspect told everyone, including petrol attendants, to get behind the counter inside the store. The two unarmed suspects then followed the instructions of the armed man.”

He said the men took cash from the station’s cash register as well as staff members’ cellphones. “They also took the staff’s jackets in order to pretend they were employees of the fuel station when they were leaving, fleeing in a white minibus.”

An armed robbery docket was being investigated.

Store manager Xulu said she was recovering from the incident even though it was traumatic.

Xulu said she was still surprised why one of the men called her by name when he demanded the cash.

Denying she was Xulu, at the time, she told the armed men she didn’t know who the person with that name was. However, the men proceeded with the robbery.
