A man was arrested within minutes of an unsuccessful bank robbery at the African Bank in Claremont.

Police Spokesperson, Elliot Sinyangana, said that police responded to an armed robbery in progress at the bank last Thursday (25 October 2007) and realised that two men had held up staff at gunpoint.

When the bank manager told the would-be robbers that the keys to the safe were not on the premises, they ordered the staff into an office and fled after removing the manager's cellphone.

Police arrested a suspect soon thereafter who had an illegal firearm in his possession. They also recovered the stolen cellphone from the suspect.

Sinyangana went on to say that no shots were fired and no injuries were sustained.
