CAPE TOWN, October 4 – Cape Town police have arrested four suspects allegedly linked to six hijacking cases in Nyanga, Gugulethu and Bishop Lavis.
Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said the Provincial Hijacking Unit and the Nyanga Cluster Tracing Team tracked down the men in Gugulethu in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The suspects, aged between 27 and 30, allegedly targeted delivery trucks and private vehicles in August and September.
