Pandemonium  broke loose when a fierce group of Daylight criminal gangsters, attacked a church in Johannesburg with heavily armed weapons during a prayer session and physically molested, frightened, assaulted and emptied the members of their valuable possessions, including several expensive phone gadgets and money from a great number of the worshipers.

Around 15 armed men stormed into the Centre of Praise International Church on Sunday morning.

“We don’t have the exact number of the people that were in church but it’s alleged that 23 cellphones were taken and an undisclosed amount of cash‚” said Captain Mavela Masondo on Monday.

The cash was taken from congregants who were yet to give their offering.

The robbers then fled the church.

No shots were fired.

“A case of business robbery has been opened for investigation‚” said Masondo.

Hinnewssa gathered that the police is yet to make any arrest as at press time.
