Lesley Musina and his son

Actor Lesley Musina and his son are grateful to be alive after escaping unharmed during a robbery at the Total garage on Beyers Naudé, Windsor West.

Lesley took to Instagram to explain what happened and how the robbers got away.

 

“I just got robbed at gunpoint by 4 men at the Total garage on Beyers Naudé, Windsor West around 20:00 tonight. The assailaints made off with my cellphone, we always appreciate surviving unscathed and unharmed. What was most disturbing for me is that my 4 year old son witnessed the whole terrible ordeal.”

After Lesley bought chocolate and was making his way back to the car, he realized he was surrounded by four men.

This is what happened: “I went to Total garage to go buy chocolate for my son who had been nagging me about it. I hardly ever go to that garage but was too lazy to go to the 24 hour Spar up the road as I didn’t wanna stand in a long queue. So I got to the garage, left my son in the car watching cartoons on my other phone. I didn’t want to go into the shop with him as I wanted to quickly buy and leave.”

They took his cellphone and manhandled him, all this time, his son was screaming.

“I bought the chocolate and went back to my car, I was wearing a jacket with a pull over hat (hoodie) as it’s cold. My peripheral vision wasn’t that great because the pullover was blocking my vision. As I opened my door, I heard a man’s voice yelling: “Lie down”, the next thing I was being manhandled. At first I thought it was someone I know pulling a prank on me. I looked up and saw 4 men, wearing hoodies and bandanas covering the lower part of their faces. They took 1 of my cellphones which was in my pocket. At that time my son was crying and screaming helplessly. The 4 men then fled, I chased them for a few meters but realised, I can’t leave my son behind. I then went to my car and tried to chase them.”

“I couldn’t see where they had disappeared to but I could see there was commotion a hundred meters away from where I was, that’s next to Seven Seas Fisheries. I got there and there were a couple of other men who had seen the suspects flee. Apparently what had happened is that as the suspects were trying to get into their moving getaway car the police saw them and pursued their vehicle. I also learnt from the other men who had witnessed the suspects fleeing that 1 of the suspects threw the gun inside the back of a stationery bakkie and he jumped a fence and went into a nearby complex to hide. We tried to search for him unsuccessfully.” – Lesley Musina concluded.
