It seems that a new trend has emerged, where criminals dined the owner of a removal truck while discussing a business prospect. However, the next thing the man remembered was waking up in a hospital bed.
According to IOL, the police spokesperson said that the man had told the police his removal truck was parked outside a restaurant while he bought food. Two men approached him thereafter asking about assistance in moving furniture. While discussing this prospect, they all sat down to eat.
The spokesperson added that “The next thing he knew he was at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital with no idea when and how he got there.
“We urge people to be extremely cautious, since this might be a new crime trend. Criminals will pretend they want to do business while they have criminal motives.”
His vehicle was also missing from where he had left it.
“We encourage residents and visitors in the CBD to activate their car alarms and use mechanisms to safeguard their vehicles at all times and to park at secure places” the police spokesperson concluded.
