Another cash-in-transit heist in Soweto Jabulani Mall

A woman has been shot and wounded during cash in transit heist at the Jabulani Shopping Mall in Soweto. This is a third such attack in a week in Gauteng.

It comes as five suspects arrested in connection with last week’s brazen cash heist in which two cash vans were bombed in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, appear in the town’s Magistrates Court.

Police say security guards from a cash van were robbed off an undisclosed amount of money at the busy Jabulani Mall earlier on Monday.

Gauteng police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini says during an exchange of gunfire a member of the public was caught in the crossfire.

“A woman who’s a member of the public was wounded in the upper body. She has been taken to the hospital.”

“The suspects fled and are still at large.  Over the weekend robbers ambushed security guards at a Shoprite store in Southdale in Johannesburg before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.”
