Durban – A Durban North family were held up by several armed robbers on Thursday night in La Lucia.
The robbers pounced as the family had just driven into their friends’ driveway while they were waiting for the automated gate to close.
The robbery happened just before midnight after the couple had supper at a local restaurant in celebration of their fourth wedding anniversary.
The suspects pointed 9mm pistols at the victims and forcefully removed them from their vehicle and fled with their white 3 series BMW.
The stolen BMW was later found abandoned by the Police K9 Unit in the Inanda area.
The armed robbery was captured on CCTV.
No injuries were reported.
