Another McDonalds robbed
« on: July 31, 2007, 11:22:43 am »
Another McDonalds hit, this time in Fourways after the Northgate one was robbed on the weekend:

Quote
Johannesburg - Six armed robbers made off with an undisclosed amount of money after holding up staff and customers at McDonald's in Fourways, Johannesburg police said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Captain Cheryl Engelbrecht said the incident happened at the Fourways Boulevard McDonald's on Monday night.

"They took an undisclosed sum of money from the tellers. Customers were also robbed of their money and jewellery," she said.

No shots were fired.

The robbers drove off in a blue Hyundai.

Engelbrecht could not confirm if the matter was linked to another incident at the weekend where two people were injured during a robbery at a McDonald's on the West Rand.

"We will look at all possibilities," said Engelbrecht.

one of my students was hijacked last Wednesday and badly pistol whipped. Has staples in his head. His sister & brother in law came to help and was shot at, luckily only hitting the car. They are so visibly shaken that they could hardly paint tonight.

Get me out of here...........................

I guess getting burgers and shakes and macdonalds is not such a good idea anymore

tonight I am staying awake as it has been the past two Thursday nights that we have had action here. I have bought an air horn that makes one hell of a noise - guaranteed to wake up the whole neighbourhood  :2funny:

That is a brilliant idea.  Nobody pays attention to house alarms anymore.  Now all the people in your street must just get one and if there's trouble everybody will know where to send security/police to.
