Thieves have stolen guns from a police station on Monday evening.
In the course of the incident at Bushbuckridge police station in Mpumalanga at about 11:45pm, a data typist was gunned by three men who had baclavas on.
It was reported that the men made their way into the charge office pretending to be needing assistance from the four police who were on duty.
Seconds later, they took out guns, disarmed the cops and forced them to open the gun safe.
Residents living nearby said they were woken by shots fired and screams coming from the police station.
A resident told Daily Sun: "What scares us is that those guns will be used to commit crimes in the area.
"Last year, Acornhoek cop shop was torched and no one was arrested.
"We are calling on Police Minister Bheki Cele to sort out this mess."
Colonel Brenda Muridili confirmed that police were looking for six guns stolen from the station.
"The suspects also shot and injured a data typist on the thigh on their way out.
"They are on the run.
"The affected members will be offered counselling by our employees'health and wellness programme," said Muridili.
"We are appealing to anyone with information to call CrimeStop on 08600 10111 or to send tip-offs to the MySaps app.
"All the information received will be treated with confidentiality."
Wandi$: What occurred in this police station is such a nightmare and crimes like these before they are executed they are well planned so it means that they criminals have been eyeing the police-station for a while now before striking.
And I doubt that this police station is a big police station as there were only four cops on duty and if the police station was a big one then I honestly doubt that the suspects were gonna do what they did as had they fired the shots obviously other cops were gonna hear them and find a way to bring them down.
The traumatized staff of the police station need to be counselling as what they experienced is a nightmare coming to life and it might take a long time before they are full healed but eventually they will be healed.
Cops need to do everything that they can to ensure that these suspects are brought to book and are punished for what they did to their fellow colleagues. And its only a matter of time before those guns are found as these criminals are gonna want to use them in another crime spree and that is the moment that cops must strike at.
