SBV SERVICES STATEMENT TO THE MEDIA
SBV SERVICES IS OFFERING A R1 MILLION REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE SUCCESSFUL ARREST AND PROSECUTION OF SUSPECTS INVOLVED IN THE TRAGIC LOSS OF LIFE OF AN SBV EMPLOYEE IN A CASH-IN-TRANSIT ATTACK IN CAPE TOWN
Houghton, 03 November 2022 – We are extremely saddened to report the loss of life of one of our employees in a callous cross-pavement attack on an ATM team in Cape Town on 02 November 2022. Mark Barrett, Group CEO of SBV Services says, “On behalf of the entire company, I wish to extend our sincere condolences to his family and colleagues. No injuries were sustained by the rest of the team members who bravely defended this attack. Our thoughts are with our team members and their families for the trauma sustained because of this attack. We have no tolerance for the loss of life and SBV will persist with its efforts to ensure that all the individuals involved in this attack will be brought to book and face the full consequence of the law. We are offering a reward of R1 million in response to the senseless loss of our colleague.”
Several suspects attacked the SBV team and opened fire on them while they were deployed to service an ATM in Sithandatu Avenue at the Nyanga Terminus in Cape Town. The suspects fled the scene of the crime without any cash.
Mark Barrett further adds, “SBV will not tolerate any attack that places our employee’s lives and health at risk. Our message to these criminals is clear: SBV will put in all the necessary resources required and work very closely with the authorities to apprehend these criminals involved in attacks against SBV. We confirm that we will never close a case until it is solved. We will make sure that the criminals involved in this senseless and violent attack are apprehended and that justice is served.”
SBV cannot comment further as an investigation is underway and we are cooperating with the SAPS as they investigate.
We know that community members are critical to the fight against crime. SBV encourages members of the community with any information regarding this attack to contact SBV’s Hotline 083 408 7029 to provide information to SBV’s investigations team. This line is active 24/7 and all callers can be assured that confidentiality is maintained.
