Theft robbery

Officer gets shot as thugs launch attack at a petrol station

This country's armed goons are doing things that leave you feeling miserable at times. On every given day, they make it a point to inflict as much agony and misery on law-abiding residents as possible.

Even the police and security officers have been targeted by these bandits, who appear to be so focused on their goal. Their efforts at robbery have been met with violence and at occasions, lives have been lost.

Yusuf Abramjee presented a report on May 3rd, 2022, which showed that South Africa was in disarray. An armed robbery occurred at a petrol filling station in Shallcross, Durban, according to a report in the media.

The culprits were in a no-nonsense mood as they pushed whatever obstructions they encountered off the path. The bandits opened fire on a security guard who was on duty that day, striking him many times in the lower body before they fled with the money.

Paramedics and law enforcement officers were dispatched to the site after the robbers fled. When they arrived at the site, they found the cop in severe condition and transported him to the hospital where he was to receive medical attention. This officer's survival was hoped for by the entire community, as he was yet another breadwinner who had been shot while attempting to provide for his family.

A manhunt has been begun by officers of the South African Police Services as part of their investigation. Police are asking anyone with information on the suspects' whereabouts to call 08600 10111 to get in touch with them.
