He alleged that he was a bolt driver and had dropped a passenger in Brooklyn when an unknown black male came to his window. He rolled down the window to speak to the person.

The person then grabbed him and pulled him out of the car with force and then climbed into the car and drove off.

That same day at approx.. 13:00 the complainant returned to Maitland SAPS to report that he was not carjacked but that his car was by a friend’s house in Brooklyn.

He refused to explain what had occurred.

The complainant was arrested on the spot for perjury Maitland CAS 39/06/2022 and will be appearing at Cape Town court on the charge.

Maitland SAPS will like to once again warn members of the public against reporting false complainants as sooner or later the truth will come out.
