Demi-Leigh told TshisaLIVE that she saw the gunmen approaching and knew exactly what was about to happen.
“I had at least three guns pointed at me. I climbed out of the car but they told me to climb back in because I was coming with them,” she said.
Having completed a driver’s safety course Demi-Leigh instinctively punched one of her attackers in the throat.
“He was dazed and pushed me into the car. I forced my way out and ran as fast as I could into traffic to get help,” she added.
After knocking on about 30 or 40 car windows for help a young woman finally let her into her car and drove her to a safe place.
Demi-Leigh later returned to the scene to find her car and some of her belongings still there.
The incident has left her shaken but she is glad to have escaped unharmed.
