The incident is said to have lasted for more than an hour and surprisingly, no major injuries were reported..

Eight of the suspects were arrested and were denied bail at a hearing before Magistrate Renier Boshoff assisted by Lufuno Maphiri on 17 May, pending further investigations by the police’s ATM bombing unit.

The gang is said to have staked out the club for some time. Patrons were robbed of undisclosed amounts of money, cell phones and other belongings and the perpetrators threatened to shoot them if they disobeyed instructions.
