CCTV footage showed a South African couple barely making it out of an attempted hijack.
Two videos were shared on Caxton EastSouth’s YouTube page on Friday which showed a couple narrowly escaping hijacking in Robertsham.
The first video showed the couple pulling up to their business in Robertsham when an Audi parks in the middle of the parking lot’s exit.
One of the hijackers, who was dressed in black from head to toe, got out of the German made vehicle with a firearm clearly seen in his hand.
He runs over to the couple, who luckily had not gotten out of their Mercedes-Benz, and tapped his firearm on the window. The hijacker then tries to pull open the driver’s locked door.
The video shows the couple reversing their vehicle and then husband slams down on the petrol, almost running over a second hijacker who got out of the Audi.
The driver pushes past the Audi, visibly damaging the hijackers car before speeding away. CCTV footage then shows the hijackers driving away in the opposite direction.
A second video posted on Caxton EastSouth’s YouTube page sees the incident from the point of view of the couple’s dashboard camera.
Hijacking is becoming quite the issue in South Africa, earlier this week Briefly.co.za reported DJ Black Coffee’s wife had to be rushed to the hospital following an attempted hijack in Hyde Park.
