Two armed robberies in three days at Cavendish Glen

Despite an armed robbery in the morning, PEP’s doors were open to customers later the same day.

Two Cavendish Glen Shopping Centre stores were robbed at gunpoint in three days.

Capt Jethro Mtshali, spokesperson for Kempton Park SAPS, confirmed that the video outlet Mr Video was robbed on Saturday evening at around 7.30pm, and clothing store PEP at around 11.40am Monday morning.

“About four suspects held [Mr Video] staff at gunpoint, before they robbed them of an undisclosed amount of cash,” Mtshali said.

On Monday, three suspects held two staff members at gunpoint. They also took an undisclosed amount of cash and several cell phones. Mtshali added that it was unclear what car they were driving.

When Express arrived on the scene at around 2.30pm, both stores’ doors were open.

Inside PEP, queuing customers seemed blissfully unaware of the events that had taken place only hours earlier.

“We are not allowed to talk to the media,” a PEP employee said. A Mr Video employee told Express she was not on duty when the robbery took place.

One security guard stated he was on duty during PEP’s robbery, but didn’t see anything. No one was injured in either case.

“Police are busy with investigations to establish whether the incidents could be connected,” Mtshali said.

Express contacted the mall’s management but they did not wish to give comment.
