I got this on my Neighbourhood Watch WhatsApp group this week: “Our nanny and baby were held at gunpoint a few minutes ago, on Grant. My wife stopped at the pharmacy and went in. A thug approached the car and pointed a gun at the nanny threatening to take the baby and demanded a laptop. “There was no laptop so he got into a white Pajero and drove off.”
The neighbour went on to describe what “the thug” looked like and what he was wearing before telling the group his family was in extreme shock.

The baby’s nanny, he said, could barely breathe. His wife was having difficulty sleeping. They’d threatened his child! He was frightened all the time.
