Three men dressed as police officers were arrested on Monday after they stormed a cellphone store in Cape Town’s city centre and robbed the owners and clients at gunpoint.
According to reports one of the suspects was caught by a bystander while two others fled on foot, only to be detained by CCID Security and City Law Enforcement five minutes later.
A fourth suspect managed to flee in a white Toyota Etios.
Police arrived on scene and confiscated two cellphones, one firearm and ammunition.
The arrested suspects will appear in court soon.
