A video emerged of a family hijacked at a Sasol garage in Roodepoort.
Three suspects wearing masks jumped out of a Mercedes and hijacked a family driving a white Toyota Land Cruiser.
According to SAPS spokesperson:
“At approximately 7.10pm, a victim aged 48 was at a Sasol Garage with his wife and two children filling up his white Land Cruiser, when a white Mercedes-Benz stopped next to the victim’s vehicle,” she said.
“Three suspects wearing balaclavas in possession of firearms jumped out of the Mercedes-Benz. One of the suspects pointed a firearm at the victim and demanded his wristwatch. He then instructed the victim and his family to get out of the vehicle.”
An informant at the garage, who was grateful that no one was injured, described the incident as a ‘quick job’ that lasted less than a minute.
““All three suspects jumped inside the victim’s vehicle and drove off,” Ntuli explained, adding that the suspects are still at large.
