Terrifying hijacking caught on dashcam in Johannesburg

The police need your help with identifying these hijackers

It is just so terrifying how quickly and easily one can be hijacked. This dashcam video of a hijacking apparently occurred on Saturday 30 May on Main Reef Road near the M2 off-ramp.

You witness a Volkswagen Jetta crusing along before it comes to a stop and four men jump out with guns. They approach the car behind them (the one with the dashcam). The registration of the Jetta is DL65CLGP.

Sergeant Mduduzi Zonda, police spokesperson, urges anyone who can identify the hijackers to please contact the police. “Motorists need to be aware of their surroundings at all times. It was a difficult situation to get out of, however, the best method of preventing a situation like this is for the driver to keep a large enough following distance from the vehicle in front of them,” he added.
