A 33-YEAR-OLD motorist was hijacked on Oscar Borcher’s Road in Marburg on Friday when he stopped at a stop sign.

The driver alleges that two men opened the doors of his vehicle and jumped in

“They allegedly pointed a knife at him and told him to drive. While in Marburg, they forced him out of the vehicle and drove off,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

The following day, Constables Sandile Mpisane, Subisiso Cele and Selby Cele acted on information and proceeded to Mkholombe where they recovered the vehicle.

The black GWM was found abandoned in the area.

Investigations are continuing and no arrests have been made as yet.

“Motorists are warned to lock doors and close windows of their vehicle when travelling. Be alert, especially at night and when stopping at traffic light intersections or stop streets,” she said. - Supplied.
