The 33-year-old woman’s dreams of renovating her home and having her car fixed have been shattered in a second.
This is after strangers robbed her of R40 000!
And it all happened after she came back from withdrawing money at a bank at Chris Hani Crossing in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni.
Agnes said she was robbed after she got off a taxi in Palm Ridge extension 19 to go to her house.
“That money was supposed to do so much, but now I’m left with not a single cent,” said Agnes.
She said it appeared as if it was something well planned.
“After I withdrew money, I took a taxi to Palm Ridge extension 19, where I live.
“As I got out of the taxi I saw a white VW Polo approach me. Two men got out of the car and asked me to stop as they wanted to ask me something. One of them quickly grabbed my bag. He was pulling it but I held on tightly. Unfortunately the strap snapped and the man ran with the bag to the car.”
Agnes said she went back to the bank in tears the next day to find out how the thugs could have known about her money as she is convinced the mugging was an inside job.
“But I was told the bank cannot help me because this happened outside the bank.”
Eden Park police said they were investigating a case of robbery.
