WALVIS BAY, 28 NOV (NAMPA) - A manager and an employee of the Multisave supermarket in Walvis Bay were robbed of N.dollars 70 321.71 by two men outside the shop on Monday.
A crime report issued by the Erongo Namibian Police on Tuesday said the robbery, in which one of the robbers had a firearm, took place at about 11h45.
The victims were allegedly sitting in a car outside the supermarket preparing to go and deposit the cash at the bank, when suddenly two men opened the doors and demanded the money.
“They allegedly fired one shot, probably in the air, grabbed the money and fled with a getaway car,” the report said.
The robbers also took the keys of the car used by the Multisave employees.
No arrests have yet been made, and the money and keys have also not been recovered.
In a separate incident also in Walvis Bay on Sunday, a man was robbed of his Toyota sedan which he was intending to sell.
The victim, Daniel Kleopas, told police he received a call from a man who claimed to be interested in buying the vehicle. After the two met, the prospective buyer asked to test drive the car up to his parents’ house, because they would be paying for it.
Kleopas said they parked outside the house and he was taken inside and offered a seat. The supposed client then called him, saying he had left the house but would return soon.
“When he (Klepoas) went outside, the car was not there and the suspect’s cellphone was switched off,” read the report.
No arrest has been made yet, and the vehicle has also not been recovered.
