WATCH: Apparent attempted driveway robbery in Roosevelt Park caught on video

The incident occurred on 4 September at around 6pm in Anton van Wouw Street in Roosevelt Park and is being treated as a common robbery.

The video shows the unsuspecting victim in a car entering her driveway when another car drives by, slowly coming to a halt.

Two suspects casually exit the second car and approach the victim’s property.

What happens in the property is not captured by the camera, but the driver of the suspects’ vehicle decide to turn the car around. Mid-turn, the two suspects hastily return, with the victim on their heels.

The video then shows the victim seemingly trying to take control of their car by opening the driver door and grabbing the steering wheel.

“The complainant’s driver’s door was opened and her bag was under the driver’s seat. The suspects did not say anything to the victim they just took her handbag and ran with it to their car,” Sibeko said.

Anyone with information that could assist police with this case can contact Detective Constable Itani Nemukangoni on 011 067 6000 or call 086 001 0111.
