Hijackers drive around with victim tied up

FOUR suspects are on the run after hijacking a 33-year-old man on May 7 on the N12 to Delmas.

The victim was saved after Mondeor police officers went in hot pursuit of a blue VW Polo that sped off when they tried to stop it in Eikenhof.

According to Mondeor SAPS communications officer Captain Nokulunga Dube, the officers were conducting a stop-and-search operation in Eikenhof at about 9pm. They noticed a blue VW Polo and tried to stop the vehicle, but the four suspects sped off instead.

Police chased the vehicle, but the suspects abandoned it and ran away.

The officers searched the vehicle and found the victim tied up in the back.

The victim said he was hijacked on the N12 to Delmas at about 8pm.

A case of hijacking has been opened and investigations are underway.
