Durban - A man from Avoca in Durban was kidnapped by a gang of armed men during a hijacking late on Wednesday night.

Marshall Security spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said the man's wife alerted security guards.

“She stated she had just received a call from her husband, who informed her that he had been hijacked on his arrival at their home earlier in the evening.

“An unknown number of armed suspects approached the man on his arrival at their premises, forcing him into the back of the vehicle before fleeing the scene,” Van Reenen said.

The man was dropped off in KwaMashu, where he called for help.

The security company and police found him and returned him home safely.

His car had a tracking device and a search for it was under way, Van Reenen said.
