PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - Motorists have been warned once again to take the necessary precautions in Plettenberg Bay after a group of suspects tried to get access to a passing motorist's vehicle.
The first incident happened last month when a local woman stopped at the Robberg and Airport roads intersection. Three suspects reportedly jumped out of a nearby vehicle, surrounded the woman's car and attempted to open the vehicle's door. Only when they realised the doors had been locked, did they flee the scene hastily, it was reported. Plett Watch's Lisa Nagel said last week a similar incident was reported to them.
"We have once again had an incident at the stop sign at the Robberg Reserve Road and Airport Road intersection where three men tried to open a vehicle's doors," Nagel said.
She urged motorists to ensure that their vehicle's doors are locked at all times and their windows closed. "Once again, I remind you to leave enough space between yourself and the vehicle in front of you to be able to manoeuvre out if in any danger. If you are confronted with a dangerous situation, put your hand on the hooter and hold it there while you drive away," Nagel said.
She added that if possible, motorists should try and get a good look at the perpetrators for identification purposes. "Ideally, you should immediately drive to the police station and open a case. The only way we can stop this, is if the perpetrators are brought to book."
