CAPE TOWN - Police in Cape Town are searching for a group of men who held up cashiers at a Makro store in Ottery on Saturday.

A cashier was shot twice and suffered flesh wounds, said paramedics.

She was treated and stabilised at the store.

The incident came just a week after another Makro store was robbed in Milnerton, Cape Town.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Andre Traut said 10 armed men stormed into the store and fled with an undisclosed amount of money stolen from nine cash tills.

No arrests have yet been made.
