CCTV footage shows the woman getting out of a white Volkswagen GTI before the men, in a white Volkswagen Polo, make a U-turn. Two males exit the Polo and charge at the woman before fleeing the scene in her vehicle.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Constable Thenjiwe Ngocbo said a carjacking case was under investigation.

"A 42-year-old woman was at the parking lot at a business premises when four armed males accosted her at gunpoint. The suspects took the vehicle and drove off in an unknown direction," Ngocbo said.
