BREAKING: Hostage Situation Brings Cape Town To Standstill

Sherryn de Vos
2017-07-05
There is a hostage situation currently taking place in Cape Town. The public has been warned to steer clear of Loop and Strand Street!
Cape Tonians have been warned to stay away from the corners of Loop and Strand Streets as an armed robbery is currently taking place. In what appears to be a hostage situation in Cash Crusaders, robbers seem to still be inside the retailer and have been said to be armed. The city's traffic has been gridlocked and streets have been closed down in an effort to contain the situation. Police and emergency services have arrived on the scene, apparently arresting one of the suspects.   A heavily armed task force was seen pushing their way into the retailer a few minutes ago.  Videos and images from the scene have been uploaded to Twitter.     It is yet unclear whether there are any injuries. We will continue to update you as events unfold! Feature Image Credit: Tony Da Silva
