ATM bombed near Rustenburg

North West - Two Absa ATMs were bombed in the Tlhabane township outside Rustenburg on Wednesday morning, North West police said.

Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said around ten people were believed to have been behind the attack which occurred next to a Caltex filling station.

"One suspect approached the security guard and pointed [at] him with a firearm and instructed him to lie down," said Ngubane.

"The suspect demanded the firearm belonging to the security guard. The security guard [reported that he heard] two explosions and the suspects fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money."

The group fled the scene in a blue unlicensed BMW.

It was alleged that the suspects took a road heading for Pretoria and Johannesburg.
