Three suspects were arrested after overpowering a security guard with a cash trolley on the pavement outside a shop in Braamfontein.

Johannesburg metro police department spokesperson chief superintendent Wayne Minnaar said armed men robbed the guard at the weekend.

Minnaar said CCTV footage revealed the identify of the getaway vehicle, a white Toyota Hilux bakkie, which was traced to Hillbrow.

“Officers intercepted it and three suspects were arrested. The [bakkie] was taken to Hillbrow police station, where the suspects were detained. 

“The other vehicle, a blue BMW, managed to escape from the scene.”

Minnaar said no firearms or money were recovered.
