Micthells Plain - Five people have been killed in Rocklands, Mitchells Plain, in Cape Town during a robbery, Western Cape police said on Wednesday.

“Four people were killed during the incident, whilst two were critically injured and rushed to the hospital. One of the two victims later died in hospital, which brought the number of people killed to five.”
The attackers took a safe and fled the scene, around 10pm on Tuesday. The six were Pakistanis.
A 28-year-old man was arrested and would appear in the Mitchells Plain Magistrate's Court soon.
