GEORGE NEWS - Yet another armed robbery took place in Pacaltsdorp this morning, Wednesday 14 April, at approximately 08:15.
According to Southern Cape police spokesperson, Capt. Malcolm Pojie, three black men, one of whom was wearing an orange jacket, entered the Pacaltsdorp Superette in Church Street and threatened the shop assistants with a firearm.
There were no customers in the store at the time of the incident.
