Potchefstroom - Two women distracted a Potchefstroom supermarket guard with conversation and possibly a drugged soft drink, before they robbed the shop with the help of two men, Beeld reported on Thursday.

North West police spokeswoman Captain Adele Myburgh said the robbery, at the Spar in Baillie Park, happened on Tuesday night after closing time.

“The two women initially asked the guard if they could use the toilet. They then chatted him up, and offered him a soft drink.”

The guard reportedly started feeling drowsy a short while later, and told police that two men had joined the women.

They tied up the guard and knocked him over the head, after which he lost consciousness.

“The robbers gained access to the shop through the ceiling and took an undisclosed amount of money from the safe. The owners still have to assess their stock to see if anything else was stolen,” Myburgh said.

The incapacitated guard was discovered by a colleague who arrived to relieve him the next morning.

No arrests have been made.
