During a cash-in-transit heist that took place on the Senotlelo-Mokgwaneng main road in Matlelerekeng outside Sekhukhune District of South Africa, one of the heavily armed robbers accidentally shoot his accomplice as they flee the scene of the heist.

Police in Limpopo said they have launched a manhunt for the group of heavily armed robbers following the cash-in-transit heist. 

Colonel Malesela Ledwaba, a police spokesperson in Limpopo, said the brazen heist occurred on Monday at 5 p.m.

“According to reports, a cash-in-transit van was travelling along the Senotlelo-Mokgwaneng road when it was attacked by a group of about 10 suspects driving a charcoal Volkswagen Jetta 5 and double cab bakkie. 

"The heavily armed suspects started to shoot at the cash van,” Ledwaba said.

The assailants allegedly pulled security officers out of the cash delivery truck and stole three guns from them.

“The suspects placed explosives onto the cash van and took an undisclosed amount of money.

“During the incident, one of the suspects was accidentally shot by his accomplice and he was assisted by his accomplices and they all fled the scene. No security officers were injured,” Ledwaba said.

Limpopo police said a task team has been formed to investigate the cash-in-transit heists and bring the perpetrators to justice.
