Armed gang rob Durban North cell phone shop

A GANG of five armed men robbed a cell phone store on Adelaide Tambo (Kensington Drive) in the early hours of this morning. According to Marshall Security’s Kyle van Reenen, the incident unfolded just after 1am at the shopping centre.

“It’s believed the armed suspsects assaulted a security officer who was patrolling in the shopping centre. They assaulted him before breaking in.

“The suspects broke into the shop on the ground floor by smashing the main display window. They stole a number of cell phones and fled to an awaiting vehicle with a sixth suspect acting as the getaway driver,” he said.

It’s believed the suspects were in and out of the shop in less than a minute.

Last year, one of the men involved in the robbery of a popular restaurant at the same centre was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.
