Police later arrested three of the suspects.
Blue Security community and media liaison officer Andreas Mathios said five armed suspects had walked into a business premises in Florence Nzama Road. Mathios said the men pretended to be customers. This took place at about 12.45pm.
“The gang held up the staff and security guard at gunpoint and grabbed the security guard’s firearm.
“The security guard managed to press a panic alarm,” Mathios said.
