Crew at community TV station Cape Town TV held at gunpoint by violent robbers who break equipment and steal 3 cameras.

Crew at the community TV channel Cape Town TV (CTV) became the victims of crime last week when four armed men on Thursday entered the TV channel's studio in Observatory Industrial Park in Lower Scott Road and robbed people at gunpoint.

The four robbers entered CTV in 2 stolen vehicles and held 20 CTV crew members at gunpoint for almost half an hour 20 minutes, according to CTV station manager Karen Thorne.

"They got very violent and broke a few cameras before locking the crew inside".

The robbers fled with 3 cameras that were recently donated to Cape Town TV by MultiChoice. No arrest have yet been made.
