DURBAN: 28 September 2021 – It is alleged that yesterday at midday, the complainant was on Alan Paton Road to pick up her child from school when a vehicle with unknown men stopped next to her vehicle.

Two men alighted from the said vehicle and pointed her with a firearm. The suspects grabbed her car keys and fled the scene with her vehicle. A case of carjacking was opened at Umbilo SAPS. The information was also circulated to all police stations to be on the look-out.  The Umbilo Task Team was patrolling their policing area when they spotted two vehicles that were driving in a reckless manner.

The police officers tried to intercept the vehicles but the suspects sped off. A chase ensued and the suspect’s vehicle crashed into a wall. Two suspects aged 22 and 23 were placed under arrest. The victim’s vehicle was also recovered at J Section in Umlazi by the same team. The suspects are expected to appear before the Durban Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
