French tourists have been shot after being followed from a nearby bank.

Brixton police received a complaint on 28 July regarding a robbery involving two French tourists that took place at approximately 12.45pm.

Upon arrival, the police discovered one individual bleeding which was caused by the robbery.

Brixton police spokesperson Jeanette Backoff said, “Police were informed that the complainant and a female friend are from France and visiting South Africa. They were driving from a bank when they were approached by two males driving a white Toyota Corolla who pointed a firearm at the visitors to stop the vehicle.”

The male victim was then shot by the suspects and had his money, passports, bank cards and credit cards stolen from him. The suspects fled the scene and police were called to the scene.

Backoff said a case of attempted murder and armed robbery has been opened and investigations are underway.
