Midrand animal shelter robbed by four armed men

Ivory Park SAPS is investigating a case of business robbery after a Midrand SPCA branch was robbed by a group of four armed suspects on August 20.

According to the Ivory Park SAPS communication officer, Capt Bernard Matimulane an employee of the agency was at work when a white Nissan bakkie arrived.

“He opened the gate thinking that the occupants of the car had brought a dog. But once he approached the vehicle after it had parked at the premises he was surprised when one of the occupants pointed a firearm at him,” said Matimulane.

Matimulane explains thereafter he was taken to the nearby veld where he was tied up by one suspect while the other three went to the building to search it.

“His two cellphones were taken and on the premises, the robbers took a micro oven, an undisclosed amount of cash and laptops. He was left tied up at the spot he was taken to and he only received help after one of his colleagues came by,” added Matimulane.

Ivory Park SAPS is appealing for information from the public.

The contact number for the Ivory Park SAPS is 011 990 9600 or, alternatively, people may tip off the police on 08600 10111.
