Congregants of the Little Falls Christian Centre on Hendrik Potgieter Road were traumatised by an attack launched by a group of armed robbers after the evening service on 11 February.

Sketchy details suggest that the churchgoers were targeted while leaving the church premises, but full details are yet to be confirmed by the church leadership. According to information BCI Security has posted on Facebook, it seems that four armed robbers in a white Nissan Navara bakkie where involved in the attack.

The security vehicle that was struck by a bullet, which went through the door and injured a reaction officer.

It was reported that a security reaction officer who drove past the scene amid the robbery was wounded by a bullet that went through the vehicle’s door and a guard from the church’s security company was kidnapped by the robbers.

The security guard who had been kidnapped by the robbers reportedly was found dumped at a petrol station in Ruimsig not long after the robbery incident.
