Six men stormed the Vodacom store at the Northgate Shopping Centre and held up staff members & shoppers.
JOHANNESBURG - Police have said they're investigating whether a group of men who robbed a Vodacom store at the Northgate Shopping Centre are part of a larger syndicate.
On Thursday, about six men stormed the shop and held staff and shoppers at gunpoint.
They then entered the store room and made off with R1.6 million worth of cellphones.
Meanwhile, police have launched a manhunt for at least nine men who killed a 65-year-old man while robbing a liquor store in Kibler Park on Thursday evening.
The police's Katlego Mogale said the suspects fled the scene in a Golf GTI and Ford Ranger.
"They wanted to rob a 65-year-old man of his wallet and when he tried to refuse they shot him and fled the scene."
