Masondo said a second G4S security official saw what was happening and opened fire.

One of the would-be robbers was shot in the leg. The spokesperson said nobody else was injured.

The four gunmen fled the scene in a white Toyota Conquest, which was stolen in Roodepoort in December.

Masonda said a pregnant woman was knocked down when the criminals fled. The woman was treated on scene, and her condition is not known.

A case of attempted robbery has been opened.

Anyone who has information on the whereabouts of the culprits can contact 10111.
