| by Michael Allen

An attempted carjacking was recently caught on a surveillance video in Pretoria, South Africa.

According to the time stamp on the video (below), the attempted crime happened on March 28.

For reasons unknown, a gray SUV pulls over to the side of the road. Seconds later, a white SUV pulls up, notes

The carjacker hops out of the white vehicle and points a handgun at the driver of the gray car.

The gray SUV quickly backs up as the carjacker chases the vehicle with his gun in hand.

Eventually the white SUV drives after the carjacker, maybe to pick him up, but then the video ends.

YouTube user Pretoria Rekord Looklocal, who posted the video, writes, “Residents are requested to be more vigilant as various syndicates and criminals are becoming more active during broad daytime hours.”
