“Our child is not in the school as stated in the article. My wife went in to get information regarding her activity for next year, and my lesson only started at 10am, so I stayed in the car.

“At 9.30am, I noticed the white VW making a U-turn and driving back towards the car. Before I could do anything, there were two guys at the passenger side, pulling me out of the car, and one at the driver’s side,” he said.

“I told them to take what they wanted but then noticed they were not armed. I wrestled myself loose and ran to the driver’s side. When I got there, the guy was in the car already.

“I tried to get him out of the car, but unfortunately he, by then, had already turned on the ignition and drove off. There were four guys.
