Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Khama Billiat was robbed at gunpoint at a convenience store, the club confirmed.

According to the Sunday World website, Billiat was in the store when six gunmen came into the shop.

Billiat, along with other shoppers were ordered to lie on the floor as the perpetrators stripped the store of its belongings.

The Zimbabwean international had his watch and wallet taken away from him by the robbers.

The robbers then bombed the ATM inside the store before fleeing from the scene.

“It’s very unfortunate and sad that such crimes occur in our country,” said Sundowns spokesperson Thulani Thuswa.

“We are very happy though that Karma  is not injured or harmed in anyway,” he said.

“I spoke to him not so long ago and is he also happy to have escaped with his life.”

Meanwhile, Sundowns suffered a goalless draw against Chippa United on Wednesday morning as they continued the PSL match which was abandoned the previous night.

Sundowns remain in fifth position with four games in hand.
