They threatened him with a firearm and a knife and got into his car.

"The man was ordered to drive towards Anderson Street, and on the way he was robbed of his three cellphones."

The man escaped at a traffic light on Anderson Street.

The robbers abandoned the car, but took the keys.

They were expected to appear in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court on Friday.
