Johannesburg - A Boksburg man scared off his would-be hijackers as they
waited for him outside his cluster home on Thursday night, police said on

"The complainant saw a white BMW parked in the driveway, he took out his
firearm and waited. An armed man from the BMW got out of the vehicle and
walked towards the man.

"A shootout ensued and the would-be hijackers were chased away," said police
spokesperson, Sergeant Safa Lengene.

Boksburg police have warned motorists to be vigilant when entering their
premises, even if they live in a cluster house.

This is the third incident where the same modus operandi has been used and
police appeal to residents in Boksburg to look out for a white BMW and a
maroon BMW.

"These two cars have been seen at a number of incidents," said Lengene.

"We urge residents to be vigilant when entering their driveways and to drive
to the nearest police station if they see a suspicious looking vehicle."
