I got robbed of my possessions at gunpoint this morning. Two coloured guys dressed in dark colours. The one was wearing a brown cap. Features are not very prominent.
They were coming from the other carriages pretending the doors were locked so they couldn't climb off. Before I could even move, as I was planning on moving carriages as well, the one pulled a pistol and sat in the booth next to me while the other one took my bag, phone and watch. Can't even hide things as they search you and this man was prepared to shoot if I didn't cooperate.
It was dreadful and scary ooking down the barrel pointed at you.
This happened on a metroplus carriage between Salt River and Koeberg Station on a Heathfield via Athlone train (0505, 05:34 train leaving Cape Town station)
Going to send in a report to metrorail. Nothing would be done, I know, but they need the statistics.
If anyone know how this can be reported to metrorail officials, please advise back as I cannot find a reliable email address or website to report this directly to Metrorail, as they don't seem to be answering their phones either.
