The Police from Soweto Flying Squad acted swiftly and rescued a woman who was hijacked and kidnapped by three men in Katlehong, Ekurhuleni. Three suspects were arrested after they were stopped by the police in Soweto on Tuesday, 14 February 2023.
Gauteng Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Mavela Masondo said members of the Soweto Flying Squad were conducting their routine patrols along Klipspuit West, Soweto, when they spotted a silver VW Polo driving recklessly.
“Police gave chase, and the Polo collided with another vehicle. Three males jumped out of the car and started running on foot. Police cornered and arrested all the suspects. On the back seat of the VW Polo, police found a female who had been hijacked in Katlehong and kept hostage”.
Masondo said suspects were charged with possession of a hijacked motor vehicle and kidnapping. They are expected to appear at the local Magistrates’ Court in due course.
