Police nab armed carjackers

Police swiftly arrested three carjacking suspects after a motorist was taken on a terror ride after they hijacked his VW Golf in Newlands East on Monday night.

It is alleged that the victim was accosted by the men, one of which was armed with a firearm. The suspects then drove off with the victim. The vehicle was later spotted in Ntuzuma, with the three suspects and the victim inside. The victim’s possessions which had been taken by the suspects were also recovered on the suspects.

The suspects were arrested and are due to appear in court soon. Newlands East Police communications officer, Col Richard Blood, has once again warned motorists against sitting in parked vehicles alone at night as this attracts criminals who are preying on unsuspecting victims.
