Referring to the “smash and grab” incident at the robot near Builders Warehouse, there has been another similar incident that happened on February 11, 2017.
On the way to pick up their daughter and friend at the Kempton Park school, after a valentine’s ball, the car proceeds toward the robot at Builders, which is something they normally do not do because of the many hijackings at that place. Suddenly without any warning, two men appeared on either side of the car and tried to break both the drivers and passenger windows with rocks.
The car shook violently as the perpetrators tried to break the windows, but because of the anti smash and grab film, did not break. One of the perpetrators tried to kick the window out because it did not break. The kick dented the left side door of the car. Another suspect tried to open the passenger door but could not. All through the order, the driver tried to ride away from the attempted hijacking and in the process almost drove over the suspects.
It was a traumatizing situation and although the victims were not attacked, the car sustained minor damages.
A window treated with anti smash and grab film being hit with a brick covered in cloth to demonstrate the strength it gives. Watch the video.
