The victim had arrived there intending to buy a camera that had been advertised on the internet.
Police subsequently cautioned internet buyers and sellers to trade carefully when conducting business arranged through internet classifieds.
In a recent incident, Sunnyside police spokesperson Captain Daniel Mavimbela said a man who had advertised a motor vehicle was hijacked at gunpoint shortly after he had given a “buyer” the opportunity to test-drive it. While driving through Sunnyside, the suspect was joined by an accomplice and turned on the car owner.
“The vehicle is still missing,” he said.
