Gaborone West Police are investigating a case in which a Chinese couple was robbed of a Nikon Camera worth P16 000 and cash amounting to P 1 200.
The incident is said to have happened at 7pm last Wednesday when the 53-year-old man and his wife were closing their Photo Africa shop at Molapo Crossing Mall.
The three suspects driving a Honda Fit car allegedly hit the man with a brick on head before snatching the wife’s bag with valuables.
Speaking to Voice Online, Gwest Station Commander Superintendent Onious Madziba said no arrest has been made.
He said the suspects were driving a car with fake number plates.
“Our investigations revealed that the number plates are of a trailer. Our officers rushed to the scene after receiving the report from the victims and it was rush hour so due to traffic congestion they took time to arrive. We advise people to report to the police if they suspect strangers in shopping malls or even near their houses. We urge people to contact us if they have any information that may lead to arrest of the suspects,” said Madziba.
