The SAPS confirmed today that it is investigating the reasons behind the armed robbery of Angelo Agrizzi. The former Bosasa executive was reportedly robbed of items worth R378 000 at a petrol station in Fourways, Johannesburg yesterday afternoon.
Angelo Agrizzi was held up at gunpoint yesterday afternoon, with the assailants getting away with R378 000 worth of his possessions.
Police spokesperson Captian Kay Makhubele says that the incident happened just after 1pm while Agrizzi was about to put petrol in his BMW:
"While the victim was in his vehicle, with the window opened, he felt something touching him next to his right ear. When he looked up he saw two unknown armed men, one of them pointing a firearm at him."
According to Makhubele, the suspects told Agrizzi to open the door and hand everything he had over:
"Items that were robbed include (a) wrist watch, a wedding ring, black leather briefcase which contained one Apple MacBook silver in colour, five Montblanc pens, (a) wallet with an undisclosed amount of cash and bank cards. The value of the robbed items is about R378,000."
The suspects had been dressed in black clothing and fled the scene in a silver sedan. No shots were fired during the incident and no injuries were sustained, reports Sunday World.
