The Knysna police spotted the vehicle driving along Watterfront Drive. A car chase then took place through the streets of the town. The chase ended when the vehicle crashed into a ditch at the top of Queen Street where it becomes a cul-de-sac. The robbers fired a few shots at the police before escaping into the heavy bush in that area.
