The Gauteng police are on the trail of a group of suspects who carried out a transit robbery on the Golden Highway, south of Johannesburg, on Friday morning.

The group of armed suspects stopped the cash van early this morning and blew it up before fleeing.

Lt. Col. Amanda van Wyk, police spokesperson, says that after the incident the suspects fled with an unknown amount of money and several firearms in a blue Audi and a white Toyota Hilux.

The firearms were taken from the money van’s security guards during the robbery.

The security guards were injured during the robbery and were taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment this morning.

An investigation has since been launched.

The police are appealing to the public to report any information regarding the incident to their nearest police station.
