Tshwane mother rescued from kidnap-for-ransom ordeal

A 30-year-old Gauteng mother has been securely rejoined with her family in the wake of being grabbed by men acting like cops. 

She was saved when police dove on her hijackers in a shack in Kgabaletsane in the Klipgat policing region in North West. 

The lady was kidnapped from her home in Atteridgeville on Tuesday by somewhere around two men, said Col Athlenda Mathe. 

"During the hijacking experience, her criminals connected with the casualty's sibling requesting a payoff." 

Police quickly set up a multidisciplinary group and prepared a 72-hour actuation plan. 

The casualty's vehicle was found in the early evening by a vehicle following organization. 

"The multidisciplinary group heightened its endeavors and circled back to a few leads and soon after 12 PM the casualty was found under monitor by one of her ruffians in a shack in Klipgat," said Mathe. 

She was taken for directing and questioning by SAPS prisoner moderators. 

A 27-year-old male was captured. Police are as yet hunting for his associate. 

The multidisciplinary group who broke the case included individuals from the National Crime Intelligence Unit, National Organized Crime Unit, neighborhood and area criminal investigators from Tshwane, just as individuals from the Tactical Response Team , individuals from the Hartbeespoort Dam police headquarters and public SAPS prisoner moderators. 

Public police magistrate Gen Khehla Sitole lauded the multidisciplinary group for rejoining the casualty with her family, protected and safe. 

"The 72-hour enactment plan has yielded positive outcomes. Inside the space of hours after the wrongdoing was carried out, our groups have figured out how to get the existence of this young lady and guaranteed that she is back home protected and safe with her family. Our work isn't done, we are closely following the accessory," said Sitole. 

Mathe informed individuals regarding the public that they reserve an option to demand any individual claiming to be a cop to distinguish themselves through delivering a SAPS arrangement authentication bearing a photograph, rank and date of arrangement of the part being referred to.
