A manhunt is under way after a cash in transit vehicle was robbed on the R74 towards KwaMaphumulo, north of Durban, on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Brig Jay Naicker said a group of men in a bakkie opened fire on the cash vehicle and forced it off the road at about at 12.30pm.

“The suspects were armed, held up the officers and robbed them off their firearms,” said Naicker.

The suspects then blew up the safe in the vehicle and escaped with an unknown amount of cash.
