Nelspruit police have launched a manhunt for a group of men who shot a security guard who was driving an escort vehicle and robbed an SBV armoured vehicle of an undisclosed amount of cash.

The guards were coming from Witbank heading towards Kriel when a Toyota Land Cruiser approached head-on to the armoured vehicle while it was at a four-way stop. Suddenly a number of vehicles which included a white Audi A4, a gold Toyota Fortuner and a white Isuzu bakkie surrounded the armoured vehicle.

The Ocupants from those vehicles, who were armed with rifles including AK47s jumped out of the vehicles, shot and wounded the guard on the escort vehicle, disarmed the guards then blasted the rear door of the armoured vehicle.

They then fled the scene with undisclosed amount of money. Up to so far no one has been arrested and police investigation continues. The injured guard together with one of his colleague who also sustained injury during the head-on collision which was intentionally casused by the suspects, were rushed to hospital.
