Gqeberha 19 June 2022:   Shortly after a complaint of vehicle hijacking was reported to police,  Gqeberha  K9 Unit members arrested a suspect and recovered the vehicle in Ikamvelihle on Friday evening, 17/06.

It is alleged that at about 19:50 on the mentioned date, the complainant  exited a house in Indwe Street in Ikamvelihle and while walking to his vehicle he saw 3 unknown males knocking at the house next door. As he got into his vehicle, the same men pointed him with firearms and forced him out of the vehicle. They drove off in his  white Nissan Micra.

Immediately the K9 members responded to the complaint and not long later, the vehicle was spotted  in Ngxangxosi Street in NU3 in Ikamvelihle. The vehicle was stopped, searched and one male, aged 33 years old was  arrested for vehicle hijacking. The suspect was alone in the vehicle.
