Philippi-East: In pursuit to ensure that perpetrators of serious-and-violent crimes do not escape the long arm of the law, detectives apprehended a wanted carjacker in Nyanga, this morning.

The detectives were busy with profiling at Nyanga police station when they identified a man that was wanted on two SAPS Philippi-East cases.

The 34-year-old man from Nyanga was arrested during March 2017 in possession of a stolen motor vehicle that he hijacked earlier the day in the Philippi-East policing precinct.

The suspect failed to appear at the Athlone Magistrates' Court during August 2017 and a warrant-of-arrest was issued.

He will appear in Athlone Magistrates' Court tomorrow (September, 30).
