A Cash-in-transit robbery that occurred in a shopping complex in Durbanville on Tuesday left two Coin Security Guards seriously injured.

Two vehicles rammed into the security van in the parking lot of the Aurora Shopping Complex at approximately 1:30pm as the security staff were preparing to leave the premises.

Two of the guards were show and the cash box, which contained an undisclosed amount of money was taken.

ER24 spokesperson, Derrick Banks, said that one of the guards was treated at the scene for a gunshot wound to the abdomen, while the second guard, who was driving the van, drove to the Durbanville Police Station to escape the robbers. He was found outside the SAPS by paramedics and taken to a nearby hospital.

Police have subsequently sent out a public appeal for anyone with information regarding the 11 armed robbers who escaped, to contact Crime Stop on 086010111.
