He swore at her and demanded her handbag while pointing the gun at her. Before she could react, he grabbed her bag which contained the money and told her to remain in the car. He grabbed her phone from her hands and threatened to shoot her if she screamed.

He took her car keys from the ignition before fleeing in a getaway car that was parked behind his victim’s vehicle.

No shots were fired. The money was intended for the school and the teacher has received trauma counselling.
