The gang allegedly threatened to assault the complainant, prompting him to run away leaving his vehicle behind.
They are said to have searched the vehicle and allegedly stole cash amounting to
US$10 000 from the glove box in the dashboard.

Nyevhe reported the matter to the police, leading to the arrest of the eight.
