Athlone Park motorist scares off hijackers

An Athlone Park motorist escaped a botched hijacking unharmed last night (Sunday, 19 March).

Blue Security operations manager Brian Jackson said a gang of armed men ambushed the motorist at her Linscott Road property at about 8pm.

“She had just arrived home and driven up the driveway when three armed men pulled up to the property in a white Audi. The suspects tried to break the vehicle windows and pulled on the doors but the motorist screamed and activated the alarm. The suspects turned and fled the scene in their vehicle. No injuries were reported,” he said.

Amanzimtoti SAPS attended the crime scene.
