Family of four hijacked at petrol station in Bryanston


A woman, her husband and two children were hijacked at gunpoint at the Engen petrol station on Main Road in Bryanston on 15 July.

The victim took to Facebook to warn the community to be vigilant when visiting the petrol station. She said the armed men were very professional. They wore gloves, were very fast and had their faces covered with handkerchiefs.

The victim said she is grateful that neither of them were harmed and said the perpetrators had the patience to allow her to unstrap her baby.

Constable David Mothapo, spokesperson for the Sandton Police Station confirmed that the hijacking did take place. “The victims went inside and when they returned to their car, a white sedan stopped next to them. The suspects went to the driver and passenger side of the vehicle and then told the victims to get out.”

Mothapo said the suspects got away with the vehicle, a phone and a handbag containing cash. They are still at large and police are investigating the incident.
