Centurion resident Hannes du Buisson said a woman may have been followed from the ATM.

“It seems like two men in a Ford Fiesta was trying to rob a woman driving a Porsche. They eventually took off with her handbag and cellphone,” he said.

Du Buisson said a security vehicle arrived and shots were fired at the hijackers, but they managed to flee the scene.

The police had yet to comment at time of print.
