Four armed suspects were apprehended in the Bayview area following an attempted hijacking on Tuesday, 29 August.
Bayview SAPS Communications Officer Colin Chetty stated that at about 12pm, members of Malvern SAPS Cst N Moodley and Cst L Govender were patrolling the Croftdene area when they noticed a suspicious motor vehicle, a white Sandero with four suspects.
Cst Govender and Cst Moodley tried to stop the vehicle but the occupants in the white Sandero increased their speed. These members called for back up and Capt Matthee and Cst Munilal of the Ethekwini Inner South Cluster Trio Crime Unit stopped the vehicle at the intersection of Lenny Naidu Drive and Silverglen Drive,” said Chetty.
Upon inspecting the vehicle, a radio with police frequencies, computer boxes for motor vehicles, remote jammers and various implements to break into vehicles were found.
The four suspects were arrested and will appear in court soon. Investigations are continuing, said Chetty.
Major General Nunkumar commended the members for the excellent manner in which they executed their duties and re-affirms his commitment to the residents of the Ethekwini Inner South Cluster that they will continue to ensure the safety of all residents.
