A 55 year old Humansdorp man was attacked, assaulted and hijacked, before being left beside the road by armed robbers who then drove off with his vehicle on 4 January 2018.

The man went outside on his small holding near Humansdorp at about 10 pm to switch off the generator when he was confronted by three men, who threatened him with a knife and attacked him with knobkerries.

The suspects forced the man inside his shop and tied him up. They then loaded items onto his Isuzu double cab, forced him into the bakkie and drove towards Humansdorp.

They then dropped the man next to the road after severely assaulting him. The man managed to alert a community member who assisted him to a local hospital.
