One bandit is in police custody after he was caught hiding in the Survival supermarket on Sheriff Street early on Wednesday morning just after carrying out a robbery at the business place. His two accomplices managed to escape.
The name of the arrested bandit has not been released. Reports state that the three men gained entry to the building by cutting through the wire fencing and breaking into the business place.
The break in reportedly took place just after 4am. A security guard who was on duty heard the commotion inside the supermarket and opened fire on the thieves.
Two of the men bolted from the building while the slower one was left behind. He reportedly hid himself in a corner and was apprehended and handed over to the police.
Investigations into the incident are ongoing.
