A Johannesburg motorist nearly became the victim of a hijacking but he managed to outsmart his assailants with some brave driving skills.
The incident occurred on Thursday morning as the man left his home in the north of Johannesburg.
Video footage of the incident also emerged as it showed 3 men getting out of their white vehicle.
The armed men then approach the target’s Volkswagen Polo.
However, he catches them off-guard by quickly reversing back towards their vehicle.
The driver of the assailants’ car then swerves to make way for the target but the 2 cars scrape each other.
The man then continues driving away while the 3 criminals are left to climb back into their car as their plan is foiled.

SAPS representative, Constable Takalani Matumba, told News 24 that police are actively looking for the 4 men but unfortunately had no leads as yet.
