Watch: Suspects flee after security guard halts Siparia robbery

Police are searching for four men who attempted to rob a supermarket in Siparia.

Video footage shared online showed as a security guard interrupted the robbery and opened fire at the bandits.

 

The assailants, upon being fired upon, ‘turned tail’ and immediately fled the scene.

Two men escaped in a white Nissan AD wagon which was parked outside.

The suspects appeared so shaken by the security officer’s actions that they abandoned their accomplices, leaving the other two men to flee the scene on foot.

No injuries were reported.

The incident took place at Violet Supermarket, along Potters Lane, at around 7.15 pm, police said.

It was captured by CCTV cameras at the supermarket and uploaded to social media platforms on Wednesday.

Siparia police are continuing inquiries.

More on this as it becomes available.
