Capt Mavela Masondo of the Gauteng Provincial SAPS told Boksburg Advertiser that the suspects used two vehicles, a Ford Focus (silver or white) and a white Ford Ranger,  in the attack on a G4S vehicle.

Police are viewing CCTV footage to ascertain the exact colour of the Ford Focus and as part of the investigation.

“We believe there were more than five suspects. They shot at the G4S vehicle with automatic rifles, forcing it to come to a stop,” Masondo said.

“They then blew open the back of the cash-in-transit vehicle with explosives. However, the suspects didn’t get any of the money before they fled the scene.”
