A 38-year-old man was arrested in the Johannesburg CBD after witnesses caught him running away from an alleged robbery, police said on Tuesday.

“The victim was driving a white Isuzu bakkie and stopped at a red robot. The man and his accomplice put a knife on his neck and demanded his wallet and also grabbed his cellphone and his GPS navigator,” police spokesman Xoli Mbele said.

Both men ran away when the driver started to scream for help.

Witnesses chased the men and managed to catch one of them, Mbele said.

All the driver's possessions were recovered.

The man was charged with armed robbery and is set to appear in Johannesburg Magistrate's Court.

Police are still looking for his accomplice. -
