The Police have launched a massive manhunt for a group of armed suspects who committed a business robbery near the N1 Capricorn Toll Gate on Monday morning.

“It is alleged that three suspects armed with rifles with their faces covered with balaclavas, entered the shop, instructed everybody to lie down, they hacked the safe and placed explosives on it and attempted to blew it up but failed,” provincial spokesperson Lt Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said.

He added that they (suspects) subsequently robbed money, two cell phones from the cashiers and they fled the scene with a white Mercedes Benz without the registration number. “The suspects are still unknown and there is no arrest”.

Ngoepe urged that anyone with information which can lead to the arrest of the suspects, may contact the nearest Police Station or the Crime stop number 0860010111 or the crime line sms 32211.
