Man hijacked, stabbed in back and robbed on way to Bible study

A 39-YEAR-OLD man sustained two stab wounds to his back in a hijacking in which he lost a car and other belongings last Wednesday evening.

Trevor Walsh was confronted by three unknown men, two armed with a gun and knife respectively, who stabbed his back twice before driving away in his white Isuzu bakkie.

According to Richmond police, initial investigations at the scene have established that Walsh was returning from work to attend Bible study at a house in Fielden Street in the Richmond policing precinct, and was alighting from his vehicle when he dropped his car keys.

“Upon picking up the keys he was confronted by the armed suspects. It is believed that the suspects then demanded that he hand over the keys to his motor vehicle and subsequently stabbed him twice in his back,” Richmond police said in a statement.

“The suspects thereafter took the keys from his possession and fled the scene in his motor vehicle, taking with them his laptop, a steel cupboard, Oakley sunglasses and cash to the value of R5 000.”

Walsh’s colleagues at the house contacted the police and he was taken to hospital for treatment.

Police request that anyone with information about the incident or the missing white Isuzu bakkie (NK 3264) call Constable Sifiso Sithole of Richmond Detective Services at 033 212 9458 or 083 732 0584 immediately.
