Two security guards were injured during Saturday night’s cash-in-transit robbery on the N3 south near London road in Johannesburg.  A vehicle believed to have rammed onto the cash van was on fire while the cash van lay on its side.

Police have not yet released any information about the cash heist, whether any money was taken or if anyone has been arrested. ER24’s Ineke van Huyssteen says when they arrived they found the two guards on the side of the highway.

“When ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene just after six o’çlock they found the two guards on the side of the highway. They were treated on the scene before ER24 transported them to the hospital for further medical care. The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are not known to our paramedics.”

On Wednesday, two alleged cash-in-transit robbers were arrested and five others shot and killed during a shootout with police following a cash-in-transit robbery at Dawn Park near Springs on Gauteng’s Eastrand.
