A Man Was Shot & Hijacked By The Spiking Gang On The N4

On Thursday, the 7th of October 2021, between 19H00 and 20H00, our team responded to a call of hijacking. As per control, the client's husband was hijacked and shot. The victim awaited his brother on the Solomon Mahlangu (M10), and N4 Offramp (East) to come from work, when the suspects appeared from the bushes, on the side of the road.

1 shot was fired through the window, which wounded the victim on his hand. He was robbed of personal belongings, whereby the suspects disappeared into the bushes again. The victim was transported to hospital, and a case of attempted murder, and robbery was opened. Silverton SAPS, along with LCRC processed the scene, and opened the docket.

It is believed that it was the same suspects responsible for "spiking" incidents on the N4, and road users are reminded to not stop next to the road. Find well lit, and safe areas to wait, and pick up family members. Also if you are spiked, it is advisable to keep on driving to a safe spot, at slow speed.
