DAILYKENN.com -- The owner of an ambulance service in South Africa was beaten and robbed this week.
Kobus Bester yielded to a white car with flashing blue lights. The occupants of the car, however, were not police.
The attackers snatched Bester's drivers license, then ordered him out of his vehicle at knife point.
The victim was beaten, kicked, and stabbed in the head before the attackers fled.
Kobus Bester, owner of an ambulance service was seriously injured when two men in a white Golf with blue lights, he presumed to be policemen or traffic officials, pulled him off the road near Byenes around 21:00 on Tuesday night.
According to Xander Loubser, spokesperson for Best Care Ambulance Services, Kobus was pulled over by the men and then asked for his drivers’ licence.
“When he took out the licence the men took out a knife and told him to get out of the car.
“Kobus tried to grab a tool to defend himself and the men grabbed him and pulled him out of his bakkie. Kobus fought back and the men stabbed him on the head, in the face and on his arm before kicking him,” Xander said.
“They grabbed his wallet but fled and left his vehicle when Kobus kept on fighting them off.”
Kobus sustained serious injuries and is still in the Eugene Marais hospital in Pretoria.
“This was the second time Kobus was involved in a hijacking incident. He was shot in the stomach by hijackers in 2008.”
On Friday presumably the same bogus traffic cops robbed a motorist and his passenger at gunpoint of their vehicle and other personal belongings on Van der Hoff road near Ten Rooms.
“The man and woman were driving from Rustenburg to Pretoria around 14:30 when they were stopped by a bogus traffic cop who asked for the driver’s licence,” said Hartbeespoort community policing forum spokesperson, Romano van der Spuy.
The couple were forced out of the vehicle, tied up in the bushes and robbed of their personal belongings before the robbers fled with their vehicle.
The Hartbeespoort police and the Hercules police are investigating the two cases.
