Four men are wanted in connection with a bread truck robberry.

Police are investigating a case of car-jacking and robbery following an incident that occurred in Vlakfontein  Extension 3 on Monday, October 2.
“A 27-year-old Pakistani national was with his friends, delivering bread to one of the supermarkets in the area at around 7.30pm, when they were accosted by four unknown armed men,” said Sergeant Khalipha Mvula of the Lenasia South SAPS.

The men held up the victims at gunpoint before locking them in the back of the delivery van.
