At least six suspects, many of whom were armed, entered a Vodacom store in a Durban mall over the weekend.
A gang of about 15 suspects stormed the mall to bag some loot, brandishing AK-47s and pistols.
A gang of 10 carrying guns broke the windows of a jewellery shop at Westville Mall yesterday morning, marking yet another KwaZulu-Natal mall robbery.
The suspects allegedly went into May’s Pharmacy in Melville, pretending to be customers before robbing the daylights out of the store.
A video shows around seven suspects trying to smash the door of a store in Durban’s Gateway Theatre of Shopping mall early on Sunday morning before making off with a couple of PlayStations.
Smash-and-grabs at malls and high-end stores are not just a South African thing. In fact, America is experiencing a particularly bad “wave” right now.

What do you do when you know you’re about to get robbed? Ring the police and wait for them to arrive. And wait. And wait.
