“While the shopkeeper was helping him, the suspect allegedly pulled out a firearm and assaulted the shopkeeper.”

Shibambo said the two other robbers ordered a shop assistant to lie down.

“The three suspects took cellphones, cash and the owner’s car keys and drove off with the car,” he said.

The stolen vehicle was a silver Toyota Yaris sedan with registration DV 94 TV GP.

“The police are appealing to anyone with information to call the Eersterust police on 012-806-1020/21 or the Crime Stop number on 086-001-0111.”

Shibambo urged residents to report suspicious activities, persons or vehicles in their residential areas.

“Information with regard to crime or suspicious drug activities can be given to police anonymously,” he said.

“Assist the Gauteng police to fight fraud, corruption, unethical behaviour or any suspicious activity that could be detrimental to the success of the police.”

Henry Godfrey, of the Eersterust CPF, said residents should always give a full description of the person or vehicle involved when reporting a crime.

“When the police go out to the scene, they need to know what or who they are looking for,” said Godfrey.

“We need to be the eyes and ears of the police.”
