It is alleged that just as they about to close the gates to the premises at about 8.30pm on Friday 21 July, four unknown men, armed with knives, a grass cutter and an axe, confronted them.

According to the Randfontein Police spokesperson, Captain Appel Ernst, the suspects demanded money, copper, the manager’s laptop and car keys. She added that the victims’ hands were tied and the suspects ransacked the premises.
