City Deep – A City Power security guard at a City Deep substation was shot in in the neck, and three other guards were assaulted, during a robbery last Wednesday night.
City Power spokesperson Isaac Mangena said the guards were confronted by three individuals who had jumped over the substation’s perimeter fence during a period of load shedding.
“They were held up at gunpoint and assaulted before being robbed of their cellphones and money. One of the security officers escaped, while the other three were assaulted. One of them was shot in the neck at close range, and is in a critical condition in hospital,” Mangena said.
A case has been opened at the Cleveland police station.
Mangena said following the incident the company is now reviewing security measures.
