The Douglasdale Community Policing Forum (CPF) has alerted people to a bomb scare at the Nicolway Shopping Centre in Bryanston.
On Sunday afternoon, the Douglasdale CPF said an evacuation and search was underway at Nicolway.
It advised people to avoid the area and said SAPS/JMPD road blocks were in operation.
“Whilst this falls under our sister station SAPS Randburg, various resources from our Johannesburg West Cluster have been deployed to assist,” said the Douglasdale CPF.
According to Crime Intelligence & Community Awareness, no bomb was found following a sweep by police.
“This is the fourth hoax bomb threat in the Sandton area in the last eight days,” it said.
