Perps shoot father, drive off with baby following hijacking

A hijacking over the festive season saw a Lenasia Family bury one of its own. Reshaad Razak was buried on December 23 after criminals hijacked his car, shot him and drove away with his infant child.
The incident occurred at the corner of Shari and Volta Street in Lenasia’s Extension 10 on the evening of December 22.
It is alleged Razak was travelling on Volta Street with his 10-year-old son and his baby when he was ambushed by a group of men driving a quantum.

It is believed the men hijacked Razak and shot him in the upper body before fleeing the scene with the baby still in the car. The 10-year-old managed to escape unharmed.

The car was later spotted at a local mall with the baby inside.
Razak was rushed to Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The police’s Vincent Mashiteng says police are investigating cases of murder, kidnapping and hijacking.
The incident has since left Lenasia in shock.
