Bramley police have warned residents to remain vigilant of their surroundings at all times.
This after another case of Rolex robbery was reported in Illovo on 4 July where a Rolex watch was stolen by three armed men.
Warrant Officer Moses Maphakela said they often wear balaclavas and gloves and added that people must remain vigilant when driving home from places such as malls and make sure they are not being followed.
“They target people wearing Rolex or high-end watches and usually drive expensive cars like Volkswagen Golf 7s, Mercedes Benz and BMWs.”
Maphakela said if someone suspects they are being followed, they should drive to the nearest police station, petrol station or another place of safety. “The community can also phone their security company if they suspect they are being followed and have them meet you.”
He said they look for their victims then follow them to rob them at their destination. “Police are busy monitoring the situation and investigations are underway.”
