Golden Arrow Bus Services (GABS) is offering a R50 000 reward for any information that will lead to the successful arrest and conviction of three men who recently robbed passengers at gunpoint on one of its buses.
GABS spokesperson Bronwen Dyke-Beyer stated that the incident took place on Tuesday evening, just before 8pm.
The bus was travelling from Claremont to Mitchells Plain when the robbery occurred.
Dyke-Beyer said “The three-armed suspects, who pretended to be passengers, stole cellphones and other personal belongings from passengers and the driver.”
“Golden Arrow has instituted covert measures and increased our own security patrols in certain areas, and we are also exploring other options,” he added.
According to Dyke-Beyer, GABS spokespersons have been advised to remain vague on the incident, amid concern that vital information may fall into the wrong hands.
GABS is working hand in hand with both law enforcement and government, as the robbery and similar such incidents are an issue of public safety.
