Job Well Done by The Police After a Successful Arrest of Hijackers

It is always good to read news about the successful developments that have been done by the members of the South African Police Services (SAPS), South Africa cannot be a country that is continuously plagued and terrorized by criminal elements who threaten the livelihood of community members. In most cases criminals grow in confidence when they feel like they will get away with their evil acts, but this time around their evil tendencies were put to a halt by the members of the police after they allegedly hijacked a woman in Cape Town.

According to reports the South African Police Services received a concerning information about a woman who was apparently robbed at gunpoint in Zeekoe Road in the Grassy Park area on Thursday morning, after she was forced out of her vehicle by three male suspects and then they took off with her vehicle, the police made sure that they acted swiftly and made a follow up on the information that was given to them. What also worked on the police favor is that the woman had her vehicle installed with a tracking device, and that also helped the police to easily track the hijacked vehicle.

After several units from the SAPS Flying Squad managed to trace the whereabouts of the hijacked vehicle, there was a high speed car chase that ensued which also resulted to the police members attempting to stop the vehicle by firering several shots at it, but with every attempt made the hijackers refused to stop as they kept on driving.

The good news is that no one got injured in the police and all three suspects were successfully arrested by the police and they are expected to make a court appearance in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court soon as they will be facing charges of hijacking. This is a job well done by the Western Cape Flying Squad for this successful arrest, this is indeed a good story to tell.
