Taxi driver fires shots at armed robbers
A BRAVE taxi driver shot at suspected robbers who attacked a motorist.
On Monday, 9 August, a motorist driving a white Toyota Corolla in downtown Jozi saw his life flash before his eyes at the corner of Troye and Albertina Sisulu streets when he stopped at a robot.
In a video that has gone viral, a group of men can be seen breaking the white Corolla’s windows and gaining access to the boot of the car.
“It is reported that the complainant was driving on the corner of Troye and Albertina Sisulu streets, Joburg on Monday, 9 August, at about 2.05pm when he stopped for the red robot.
“He was driving a white Toyota Corolla and suddenly four to five suspects approached him, broke car windows, and pointed firearms at him before robbing him of an undisclosed amount of cash and a cellphone,” said Captain Mavela Masondo.
Masondo said the motorist’s car rolled forward and bumped into the Toyota Quantum.
“The driver of the Quantum got out to check only to be pointed at with firearms by the suspects and he drew his licensed firearm and fired shots in the direction of the suspects. The suspects fled the scene,” Masondo said.
The driver of the Toyota Corolla was shot in the leg and treated at the scene.
Masondo said cops have opened a case of armed robbery and attempted murder, and a search for the suspects is underway.
