A motorist was hijacked, robbed and stripped to his underwear in Pretoria today, Gauteng police said.

Two men, one armed with a knife, confronted him at the corner of Proes Street and DF Malan Drive where he had stopped at a red traffic light, Warrant Officer Louis de Bruin said.

“A man suddenly appeared at his window and reached into the vehicle with his arm.”

The victim grabbed his attacker’s arm and pushed it out of the vehicle. During this scuffle another man armed with a knife got into the vehicle, and told him to drive and keep quiet. The first attacker climbed onto the back.

The pair robbed him of R5 800 in cash and his clothes and fled on foot, leaving the bakkie. The man drove to the Hercules police station in his underpants and reported the attack.
