Johannesburg, South Africa (AHN) - A group of four "nicely dressed" but armed robbers hijacked a man and forced him to take them to his home where they superglued him to an exercise bicycle and robbed. The man remained fixed on his bike for at least three hours until his wife returned back and called for help.

The strange incident happened with 50-year-old asthma patient Kobus van Deventer on Wednesday afternoon while he was driving his car through Johannesburg's northern suburbs

According to a spokesman for Netcare, a private company which helped with Deventer's rescue from superglue, the attackers forced Deventer at gunpoint to take them to his home, where he was strip naked and superglued to the seat of an exercise bicycle.

Not wanting to make light of the poor man's situation ... but ... I sometimes wish I could superglue my own rear to the exercise bike!
