No need to panic. Rhythm City actor Jamie Bartlett, who plays the role of David Genaro, is physically and mentally strong

according to etv publicist, Joe Strydom. This is after the actor was robbed at gunpoint and stuffed in the boot of his car in Auckland Park/Brixton area on Friday night. The three men who hijacked and robbed the actor “politely dropped off Jamie at Zonkizizwe township” (on the East Rand). “He was brilliantly looked after by the community and the police. Jamie is fit and strong , both physically and mentally. He will be back on set before you can say "knife," says Strydom. Jamie lost his car, shoulder bag, iPhone and gold rings, together valued together at around R1.2 million, according to reports.

The robbers are still on the run. Gauteng police spokesman Kay Makhubela, has confirmed that police are still investigating.

“We hope that we can find them, but they are still on the run”, says Makhubela. “If we arrest anyone considering this matter, they will face hijacking, kidnapping and armed robbery charges”.
