A man is believed to be robbing taxi service drivers in Randburg and surrounding areas.
Lucky, an employee for a security company in the area, says a Taxify driver had suffered severe burns when he found him on the corner of Louis Street and Milner Road in Northcliff on Wednesday.
I asked him and he said he was robbed by this white guy who pretended to be a client.— Lucky, caller
This is the second guy in two weeks that I found there. Last week it was an Uber guy, now it is a Taxify guy. He is robbing people using petrol and a lighter.— Lucky, caller
He uses the same spot. Corner Milner and Louis street. This white guy apparently has a scar on his face. He carries a small bottle of petrol and a lighter.— Lucky, caller
Another caller says a similar situation occurred when a female driver picked up a passenger in Maraisburg, Randburg.
There was a lady Uber driver who picked up a passenger in Rivonia or Malibongwe drive, somewhere there. The guy gave the address of 6th avenue and Triangle street Maraisburg. What happened was when she was about to drop him off, he threw her with pool acid, burnt her in her face and hijacked her vehicle.— 702 caller
