The victim alleged that he was in the company of a friend, walking home from work, when a silver/blue Hyundai i20s stooped.
The occupants asked the victim for directions to the Whitehouse Shopping Centre.
“The victim provided them with the directions and the car drove for about three metres before coming to a stop. The victim stated that two men exited the vehicle, each armed with a firearm,” said communications officer of Phoenix SAPS, Cpt L Naidoo.
