Security guards at the Bramley Gardens Shopping Centre in northern <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><city w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Johannesburg have described to Eyewitness News how a daring cash heist unfolded there on Wednesday.

A group of at least five armed men targeted a Fidelity cash van there.

They pistol-whipped one of the cash guards before making off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

One security official saw the gang arrive at the centre.

He said the men lay in wait for a guard carrying a cash box to get out of the van.

“So they took him back, to the truck and they forced the driver to open the door to the safe. He opened the safe, they took the cash and they were driving in two vehicles.”
