He and an accomplice, who is at large, went into the shop on Florence Mophosho Avenue when an Albany truck was delivering bread. They pointed a gun at the victim and forced him to lie down. They took R2 000 in cash from a till, a R1 000 airtime vouchers, R1 300 worth of cigarettes, a cell phone worth R4 000, his passport and asylum documents.

Hlongwane was found in possession of a gun. It wasn’t specified if any of the items were recovered.
