They then held up staff and a Fidelity guard inside the building and stormed the cashier's department while the others held up a security guard outside.

The men fled on foot .

Theincident traumatised staff and students.

Superintendent Muzi Mngomezulu said: "The suspects ran away on foot so we hope to make arrests soon."
