Security guards manning the Asian-owned shop, called ‘Oriental’, reported that a large group aggressively approached the outlet at around 8.30am and started vandalising it.
“The guards were here but the crowd approached and we started moving them,” Simon Haruma said.
“Two of our vehicles that were here radioed to the base and reinforcements arrived.”
A warning shot was issued to disperse the crowd, where the armed guards moved in to secure the shop.
Two suspects have been apprehended and handed over to police. One of them was caught whilst in the shop.
