In recent days there has been a significant increase of kidnappings in the country, and this is something that has made the work of the police more difficult, and this is a most definite wake up call for the members of the law enforcement agencies that they may need to do their work more efficiently and effectively, just as the South African Police Services (SAPS) in Polokwane have done as they managed to arrest two suspects who allegedly kidnaped a 56 year old regional bank manager while he was jogging.
This incident was also confirmed by Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo who revealed that the victim of this crime went for a jog around 9am ok Saturday morning when he was suddenly abducted not far from his home in the Welgelegenn area. After he was taken the suspects allegedly made contact with the victims family as they demanded a large substantial amount of money for his safe return.
The good thing made by the family is that they reported it to the police and the detectives from the provincial investigation unit, crime intelligence and organised crime unit, tactical response team, and joined by specialised hostage negotiators they all started to investigate this incident and gathered all necessary information they needed before they could proceed to take action against the abductors. Reports indicate that a ransom money was dropped off at the agreed pick up point, and the suspects came driving in two different BMW vehicles, one was black while the other was white.
The suspects managed to take the money but thru still drove away with the victim inside of one of the vehicles, and that's when a high speed Chase between the police and suspects ensued, and the police managed to catch up with the vehicle where the suspect was held after it had crushed, two suspects aged between 25 and 28 were arrested, while the victim and the money were recovered. The police are still looking for the escaped criminals.
