Followed from Bank & Robbed

A Table View resident was followed home from the bank yesterday, and robbed at gunpoint. The incident took place at noon, outside the victim’s home in Guildford Road, upon his return from a nearby bank.

According to police spokesperson Captain Adriana Chandler the incident unfolded as follow: Three armed men jumped out of a vehicle while the driver waited inside it.

They demanded the victim’s cash. After he handed it over they demanded his car keys and cellphone. The victim handed these over too, and ran inside his house. The robbers then fled towards Parklands.  All four of them had their faces covered.
