Johannesburg - Seven men escaped following an attempted armed robbery at a curtain manufacturing factory in Crown Mines, Johannesburg metro police said on Wednesday.
The attempted robbery happened on Tuesday afternoon at Mineral Crescent Street, said Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.
“The men fled the scene in a black Golf after a shoot-out with the security guards.”
They left behind a minibus taxi which had false number plates.
An unlicensed firearm, a wig and three pairs of dark sunglasses, which could have been used for disguise purposes, were found, said Minnaar.
No arrests had been made, and police were searching for the men.
