According to information received from the Brakpan SAPS, the victim pulled over thinking it was the police.

One of the Mazda’s three occupants opened the Quantum’s passenger side door and pointed a gun at the victim.

The victim was driven to an unknown location where the clothing was offloaded.

They then bundled the victim into the Mazda and travelled to Alberton, where they dropped him off near the highway.

He was given R50 taxi fare and the hijackers drove off.
