Police have thwarted a robbery in Honeydew on <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><city w:st="on">Johannesburg’s <place w:st="on">West Rand.

It is understood seven Zimbabwean nationals were planning to rob a deli in the area but the men were arrested and officials confiscated two pistols and a revolver.

We actually foiled a robbery that they planned in Honeydew, targeting a Seemans meat deli. It’s a very busy area. They are now detained at the Parkview police station. They’ll be appearing at the Johannesburg Magistrates Court on Monday," said the police’s Tumi Golding.
