Head of Crime Line Yusuf Abramjee nearly hijacked
Armed men approached Abramjee & demanded his car as he was leaving the Change Makers Conference at UJ.
JOHANNESBURG - Head of Crime Line Yusuf Abramjee has been involved in an attempted hijacking.
Abramjee was leaving the Change Makers Conference at the University of Johannesburg when he was approached by armed men who wanted to take his vehicle.
He then sped off and the suspects jumped into a white Toyota tazz and followed him.
"A high speed chase followed and we went through many parts of Johannesburg. They then came towards Braamfontein and along the way two of the gunmen jumped out, fired a shot in my direction and luckily they missed. They've now disappeared into Hillbrow."

Police are looking for the white Toyota Tazz with no registration plates.
The Crime Line head said, "So anyone who sees a white Tazz with no registration behind must immediately contact 10111."
He has also assured South Africans that he is doing fine following the incident.
"I'm unharmed but once again it shows the crime situation is something which I say again is out of control."
