Rustenburg – On Friday afternoon, 20 January 2017 at approximately 13h30, a woman parked her vehicle, a golden-coloured Range Rover Sport, next to the gate of the parents’ parking lot of Selly Park Convent school. 

She slipped into the ladies room when, out of the blue, an African male wearing a balaclava held her at gunpoint. 

“The suspect warned the woman to cooperate with him,” Captain Elsabé Augoustides, police spokesperson, said. She was robbed of her designer wrist watch, silver wedding band, I-phone and car keys. 

The man fled the scene and got into a silver BMW (registration plates: JMP 669 NW). There was other occupants in the getaway vehicles, with one waiting outside the car. Once his fellow-accomplice emerged from the ladies room, he grabbed the stolen keys and sped off with the woman’s Range Rover. 

A motor vehicle theft and armed robbery case was opened and the Police are investigating. The value of the vehicle and stolen items are estimated at R1.4 million.
