Badroodien said the latest incident happened on Thursday morning “when armed robbers stormed the Crossroads 1 clinic, where 15 staff members and two security guards were on duty”.
“The gunmen gained entry into the facility via the turnstile gate entrance and forced their way into the clinic. A clerk who had tried to keep a door closed was slapped as the robbers discussed whether to shoot him.”
He said the gunmen robbed patients and staff, before pistol-whipping the facility manager and taking her phone, laptop, dongle, jewellery and the clinic keys.
“At the time, the district driver was doing his deliveries and he too was robbed of his personal vehicle car keys, wedding band, home keys, car key tags and a bag with personal belongings,” he said.
“The vehicle was also taken, but retrieved later by city law enforcement.”
