A video was shared on social media, which showed an elderly couple getting hijacked at gunpoint at a petrol station over the weekend.
The footage was shared on Multimedia LIVE's YouTube page on Monday morning. However, Briefly.co.za learned the incident took place on Saturday at a filling station in Limpopo.
"An armed robber hijacked an elderly couple’s car at a petrol station in Mokopane, Limpopo, on October 6 2018," part of the video's description read.
The video shows an armed man approaching the vehicle, holding a gun to the window as he attempts to open it.
A few moments later an elderly lady is seen getting out of the car, taking out some of their belongings before the driver also exited the car.
The hijacker then gets into the car and drives off. According to the video's description, the car was later recovered at a village 30km away from Mokopane.
Hijackings have become a serious problem in South Africa and sometimes the thugs are the people who are supposed to protect us. Briefly.co.za previously reported about an incident, where an on-duty cop hijacked a couple at gunpoint.
