Eden Park Couple Hijacked

Eden Park Couple Hijacked: A couple from Lancia Street, Eden Park were surprised by armed men and then hijacked when they arrived at home at 21:30 on Sunday, November 27. The couple stopped at the gate and saw no person or vehicle in the street. “But just as my husband was opening the gate, a silver-grey Camry stopped behind our car and three armed men jumped out,” the woman said. “Two attacked my husband, taking the car keys while one opened the door on my side and took my handbag, with our house keys inside,” the woman said. “Everything happened so quickly. It was over in a few seconds and our car was gone. I ran to our neighbour and phoned the tracking company, who found our vehicle in Vosloorus. “I was happy for having our car back, but most of all I’m happy that no lives were lost; or any injuries sustained,” she added.

Be crime conscious – be aware of crime opportunities at all times!

  • Never walk around alone and don’t talk to strangers. Be on the lookout for strange cars or people.
  • Walk in well-lit busy streets and in a group, if possible.
  • Make sure your home is secure, and become a member of an armed response service. Be sure that you know all the emergency numbers or have them displayed in an accessible area.
  • Always let someone know where you are going and how long you will be gone. But think twice before advertising your impending absence on social media. Criminals also have access to Facebook and Twitter.
  • Know all emergency numbers.
  • Trust your instinct.
  • Avoid going onto a congested street where you cannot even walk properly, that is where you will find criminals pick pocketing.
  • Avoid displaying valuables where criminals can see them.
