CAPE TOWN - An armed gang on Monday morning robbed a new store at Woodstock's trendy Biscuit Mill shopping district, according to Western Cape police.
According to neighbouring businesses, the robbers targeted the DJI store, which specialises in drone technology, and opened only a week and a half ago.
Police spokesman FC van Wyk confirmed that four suspects, two of whom were armed, entered the shop at around 11.30 am and ordered the staff to lie down on the ground.
"According to reports four unknown males entered the shop, two positively armed. The suspects instructed everyone to lie down on the ground," Van Wyk said on Tuesday.
"They then took several items from the shop and fled the scene in a red golf GTI in an unknown direction. No shots were fired and no injuries were reported during this incident."
