Pesky Monkey Leads To Carjacking

A man trying to get a monkey out of his car was hijacked by two gunmen in Glenwood, Durban, paramedics said on Monday.

Nick Dowell told paramedics his car was parked on Queen Mary Avenue in Glenwood when he opened his car door and a monkey jumped in, Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks said.

"The man told us that the monkey was in his car and he was trying to get it out. As he got it out, two men with guns approached him," he said.

Wicks said the pair "pistol-whipped" Dowells several times, then took his car. He sustained severe head trauma.

Paramedics on the scene treated and stabilised him before he was taken to St Augustine's Hospital.
