ARMED ROBBERS TARGET KILLARNEY RACE TRACK
Security officers were on duty at Killarney race track after 01:00 on Tuesday, 14 August 2018, when a vehicle asked to gain entry to pick up a friend inside the premises. The security guard opened the gate, and once inside the property, the occupants of the vehicle threatened the security officer with a firearm.
The other security officers inside the office were also threatened, their cell phones taken and their hands and feet were tied with their own shoe laces.
Another two vehicles entered the premises and they drove to an office block where a safe was kept. The men forced the door open of the office, forced the door of the safe open and took an undisclosed amount of cash, before fleeing the scene.
The security guards managed to loosen themselves a few hours later, before contacting their security company, who in turn contacted Table View Police.
Victim support was offered to the security officers.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Mgaju at Table View Police Station 021 521 3300 or Crime Stop anonymously on 08600 10111.
