The MTN store in Twin City Mall in Heidedal, Bloemfontein, was robbed yesterday afternoon at around 5pm. A similar incident occurred at the same time this year, where 55 cell phones worth R271793 were stolen from the store.

Police spokesperson, Ikobeng Hlubi, told Bloemfontein Courant that the suspects came into the store and stole only the cellphones of the clients that were in the store at the time.

She further added that fortunately nobody was hurt during the robbery. Bloemfontein Courant visited the store on Friday morning, but it was closed.

Hlubi said that no arrests have been made as yet. This is a developing story.– Sazly Hartzenberg
