Armed men rob Otjomuise clinic

Six masked men robbed a clinic in the Otjomuise area of Windhoek in the early hours of Saturday, after holding two security guards at gunpoint, the police have reported.

The robbers took goods to the value of N$20 000, including about N$4 900 in cash, police spokesperson Elifas Kuwinga reported on Sunday.

Kuwinga said the six men were armed with a pistol and pangas that were used to cut the wire fence of the clinic.

“They further held the security guards at gunpoint, tied them up, handcuffed them, took their cellphones, and teargassed them before placing them inside a container room,” Kuwinga said.

A microwave, a fan, one gas cylinder and two tear gas bottles were found in a riverbed behind the clinic after the robbery.

The police are continuing to investigate the matter.
