St Francis Bay businesses robbed
Two St Francis & one Jeffreys Bay businesses were robbed of cash and cellphones by armed criminals last week. All business owners and shopkeepers are advised to be vigilante and more security conscious.
In one incident, a St Francis Bay take away outlet was robbed of cellphones and the day’s takings on Friday 1 July in the evening .
Early the next morning a St Francis Bay businessman was alone in a restaurant at 6 am. A man wielding a screwdriver approached him and threatened to kill him if he did not hand over cash and his cellphone. Having taken a cellphone and some cash, the man shouted to his friends outside and ran away.
Earlier in the week a man entered a shop in JBay and threatened the woman in the shop. She handed over an undisclosed amount of money. As she moved from behind the counter she was stabbed in the arm by the suspect who fled out of the shop.
