Port Elizabeth - Port Elizabeth police on Monday praised officers at a private security company and a petrol station employee after they assisted in the arrest of two robbery suspects.
Police spokesperson, Colonel Priscilla Naidu said two suspects entered a petrol station at William Moffet Expressway on Sunday night at 10pm and held up the cashier at gunpoint.
Naidu said the cashier was ordered to empty the contents of the cash register into a plastic bag.
The suspects then held up a 18 year-old customer in the shop before taking him to his luxury vehicle and ordered him to drive them away from the scene.
The teenager stalled the car in Circular Drive and ran away when the suspects ordered him out of the vehicle.
