We’ve all been there. Our kids want a treat and we are tired. They keep asking and, not wanting to let them down, we give in and drive to the nearest shop to get them that chocolate, or ice cream or whatever it is they want.
This is exactly what happened to Lesley Musina when he drove to a nearby petrol station to buy his four-year-old son a chocolate as a treat. What followed though was not an ordinary trip but rather a harrowing experience for both father and son.
Briefly.co.za reports that Lesley dashed to the petrol station with his son and, to save time, jumped out of his car quickly, leaving the four-year-old in the car while he ran in to get the treat. When he got back out and started to get into his car, he was surrounded by a group of men wearing hoods and holding guns. They ordered him to lie on the ground while they took his one phone from his pocket.
Only when his son started screaming did the men run away. Wanting to catch them he ran after them but turned back quickly as he realised he could not leave his son alone in the car.
He has reported the incident to the police and a case has been opened. No arrests have been made at this time.
