South Africa: Manhunt Launched for ATM Bombing Suspects

press release

Police have launched a manhunt for a group of suspects who bombed two ATMs in the early hours of Wednesday, 11 December 2019 at the Pick n Pay Centre in Eersterust, Tshwane.

It is alleged that the group of heavily armed suspects pounced on two security guards who were on duty guarding the centre and restrained them with their shoe laces and belts.

The suspects then allegedly proceeded to the two ATMs and subsequently bombed the ATMs with explosives. The suspects managed to take an undisclosed amount of cash from the ATMs before fleeing the scene. No one was injured during the commission of the crime.

The police are appealing to anyone who might have information about the incident or the whereabouts of the suspects to call Eersterust SAPS on 012 806 1020/21, Crime Stop 08600 10 111 or via the MySAPSApp. The App may be downloaded on any Android or iPhone.
