An American tourist was shot in a robbery in Sandton,  just after  stepping off the Gautrain to start his holiday in  South Africa

Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Leon  Engelbrecht, from the police’s World Cup National Joint  Operations Centre, said 35-year-old David Bueche was  assaulted and shot in the arm, after getting off the  Gautrain at the Marlboro station on Wednesday night   just after 9pm.

“He was walking in Northway Street from the Gautrain  station to a backpackers lodge,” said Engelbrecht. “He  was assaulted, shot and  robbed by four men in an  unknown vehicle.”   

Bueche had just arrived in the country for holiday at the  OR Tambo Airport on Wednesday night, and took the  Gautrain to the Marlboro station.

He was taken to the Sunninghill Clinic and was in a  stable condition.

“He is here on holiday and not for the World Cup,” said  Engelbrecht.

No arrests have been made yet.
