15 Aug 2017, Johannesburg: A man, believed to be in his 50s, was left seriously injured this afternoon after an apparent hijacking that occurred on Rail Road in Florida, west of Johannesburg.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at approximately 13h30, finding members of the CPF already in attendance.

Paramedics assessed the driver of the taxi and found that he had sustained serious burn wounds to his arms, chest and face.

The man was treated for his injuries and immediately transported to Helen Joseph Provincial Hospital for immediate care.



The patient later told paramedics that he had picked up the suspect and had driven him to the Rail Road.

The suspect then attempted to hijack the patient and throw, what is believed to have been acid, in his face.

The patient was able to apprehend the suspect, who was later handed over to the local authorities.

An investigation will be launched by authorities into this incident.
