Theft robbery

Alleged hijackers caught red handed. Their ages are sh0cking

Three hijackers were caught just a few hours after robbing a taxi driver of his vehicle. 

According to the police, the hijackers were caught by alert patrolling officers. But it is their ages that are shocking.

The hijackers are aged between 20 and 24. They are so young.

Police spokesperson Captain Sandra Janse van Rensburg said that at about 8.10pm on Thursday, a taxi driver was dropping off a client in Joe Slovo when he was approached by three men and allegedly forced out of his white Toyota Conquest.

The men then drove off with the vehicle and the driver reported the incident to the KwaDwesi SAPS.

Janse van Rensburg said on Friday at about 7.15am, officers from the Humewood police station were busy with patrols in Central when they spotted the Conquest along with three occupants in Athol Fugard Terrace.

The men, aged between 20 and 24, were arrested on a charge of vehicle hijacking.
