Hijacking in CBD

2016-12-14 06:01

A WOMAN was hijacked on Monday, 5 December at 8.10am in the Toti CBD.

“The victim stopped in front of a motor spares shop. She was already outside her vehicle, an ice-blue Range Rover, when she was approached by three unknown men. Two were armed with fire-arms which they pointed at her and demanded the vehicle keys,” said Amanzimtoti SAPS spokesperson Captain Charlene van der Spuy.

She said the suspects then attempted to force the victim back inside the vehicle, but the victim begged them to leave her and handed them the keys. The suspects then jumped into the vehicle and drove off. The victim’s handbag, with her purse, two cell phones, cash and a laptop were still inside the vehicle.

“Total value of property taken is estimated at R1 108 080. The suspects were on foot. No shots were fired and no injuries sustained. A case of hijacking is being investigated,” Captain van der Spuy added.
