HIJACKERS WEREN’T AWARE OF THE RETURN POLICY
In the late hours of Thursday night, when dropping a resident off at home in Rowallan Park, disaster struck.
Suspects, armed with knives, approached the stationary vehicle and instructed the occupants to get out. The suspects climbed into the vehicle and sped off, with the victim’s handbag inside. What the hijackers weren’t aware of was the Tracker that was installed. So the vehicle was recovered in Deal Party shortly after. No suspects were arrested but the investigation is on-going.
There are always questions of what one should do in that situation; should you drive away? Should you fight? Should you surrender? And there is no definite answer as every situation is unique, and every situation requires the victim to be able to read all the variables to make an accurate decision, and that decision needs to be made in a matter of split seconds.
The best way then is to try avoiding these situations completely, although not always possible. Staying completely aware of your surroundings is imperative and could be the defining factor between life and death.
