We often hear how cruel and cold-hearted thieves act when attempting to steal people's cars or belongings.
However, one Eastern Cape thief proved not all criminals are bad when he showed kindness to his victim's kids.
A mom was on her way to drop her 10-year-old son and daughter, six, off at school when she accidentally hit a pedestrian on the R61 between Mthatha and Ngcobo, TimesLIVE reported.
The mother got out of the car to tend to the teenage pedestrian when a man jumped in her car and sped off with her kids still in it.
Any parent would fear the worst, but Briefly.co.za learned the thief did not harm the children at all- in fact, he dropped them off at school and gave them R20 each.
Police spokesman Captain Dineo Koena confirmed the story, adding both kids were found unharmed at Chris Hani Park.
“Yes‚ the kids were found and the car was recovered today. The kids were found at Chris Hani Park. The car was recovered through a tracker‚” said Koena.
Meanwhile, with the help of a car tracker, the vehicle was found abandoned at Tsolo.
