Management at Meditas Spar in the Universitas area in Bloemfontein confirmed an armed robbery that happened last night. This, after a video showing three heavily armed men entering the store, directing everybody to lay down on the floor and robbing them of their possessions made rounds on social media.
The manager of the store told OFM News the incident happened yesterday just after 20:00. He says they are at this stage going through the CCTV videos with the police. Police spokesperson, Sinah Mpakane, is yet to respond to OFM News’ enquiries.
