Armed robbers target Heidelberg

Armed robbers targeted Heidelberg over the last 24 hours as three seperate incidents occurred in this time.
Two robbers pretending to be service providers persuaded a domestic worker of a house in Marais Street to open the gate at around 10:15 yesterday morning. They overpowered her and tied her up while ransacking the house. The suspects sped off in a white Nissan X-Trail.

This morning at around 09:00 three suspects entered Ackermans in the Shoprite Centre in Voortrekker Street. They went straight to the cashiers and pointed a firearm at them. They ordered the employees to open a cell phone display cabinet and empty the contents in to their bags. They fled in a Toyota Tazz.

In the third incident three robbers entered Sportscene in Heidelberg Mall at around 10:30. They followed the same modus operandi and fled with an undisclosed amount of cell phones and various brands of tekkies. It is believed that the suspects fled in a silver Mercedes Benz vehicle.
