Bad Spring Day for hitchhiker

According to the spokesperson of the police in Carletonville, WO Peter Masooa, she was hitchhiking near the Caltex garage at around 22:30 when a white Toyota Avanza pulled up next to her.

She told the driver she wanted to go to Fochville and got into the vehicle, which was occupied by three men and a woman.
The woman paid for the trip and started chatting with the other passengers.
They said they were going to West Deep No. 3 Shaft.
The trip took a turn for the worse when the three men suddenly pulled out firearms at the Blyvoor turn-off on the R500. ‘They told her to take off her T-shirt, Nike cap and Lacoste sneakers. They also took her bag, which contained cash and clothes,’ says Masooa.
Two of the men had 9 mm handguns and the other had an R5 rifle. One of the suspects was wearing a black leather jacket and had a dark complexion while the driver had short hair and was wearing a grey T-shirt.
They let the woman get out unharmed.
