Bloemfontein - A Free State government ambulance was stolen after the driver and his friends were held up by gunmen in Wepener, police said on Monday.

The driver visited a colleague at his house in Wepener on Sunday at 7.30pm, Sergeant Yanga Ngcukana said.

Three men followed the 35-year-old driver into the colleague's house and demanded the ambulance's keys. One robber left but two remained behind.

The driver and the other occupants of the house were held hostage in one room for about 30 minutes. Police said the two men left after receiving a phone call, allegedly from the man outside.

They stole the ambulance and the driver's cellphone. The driver was unharmed. No arrests had been made. - Sapa
