Bogus cops hijack another man

2013-02-06 16:33

Another man has been hijacked by bogus Johannesburg metro police officers, the second case this week, a spokesperson said.

Superintendent Edna Mamonyane said three heavily armed men wearing metro police uniform stopped the man in his Toyota Quantum near Midrand today.

They were travelling in a silver VW Polo.

“They entered his vehicle and drove with him to Eldorado Park, where they dumped him,” Mamonyane said.

On Monday, a man had his car stolen on the M1 between Marlboro and Grayston roads after the officers pulled him over. They took his car, leaving him on the side of the road. He flagged down a metro police car.

During the ensuing chase, the vehicles drove into Alexandra. The man’s car has still not been found.

“We call on the public ... If you have a vehicle that is following you for a period of time, try to drive to a police station if you are suspicious of it,” Mamonyane said.
