Ivory Park Police Hijack Couple

04 April 2013, 07:43

This incident is posted on behalf of my Mum and Dad.

"On 28 March 2013 me and my wife went to look for a bath at Build it Hardware in Ebony Park, we could not find the colour bath that we were looking for. We decided to go and look for it in Kempton Park.

We had our car parked in front of the Nedbank at the Shopping Centre. We both got into the car, before I could start the car, the doors were opened and guns pointing at us. I the driver asked the policeman who was pointing a gun at me what the problem is, before he could answer another one came from behind him and demanded that we get out of the car, and he started searching the car, he instructed the one who opened the driver’s door to handcuff me.

A police van parked behind my car as I look around we were surrounded by police with automatic rifles pointing at us. The officer who was searching inside the car came to me and asked me to open the boot and still he did not find what he was looking. One of the officers who had automatic rifle asked whose car was this I answered Ndaba’s car.

While the drama of searching the car and my wife’s hand bag took place, I could hear the radio inside the police van mentioning my name and the address where I live. One of the officers said lets leave them, but the one who demanded that I be handcuffed refused. He ordered us to go inside the police van. I asked him what about my car, he said” I will drive it “, like he has never driven a private other than an old police van.

They drove us to Goniwe Police Station at Ivory Park. At the station we were ordered to wait at the office next to a charge office. They did not know what to do with us. The officer who handcuffed me started asking his colleague for the telephone numbers of a certain person; no one seemed to have   those numbers, eventually another one who was not in uniform started dialling the phone which was on the brown desk. He called one of the officers who arrested us and went with him in the corridor and whispered with him.

When they returned the officer who arrested us said” they say we must let the occupants go but we must take the car”. He took out the keys and uncuffed me. I said to them if they want to take my car they must give me a document which states that they have taken the vehicle and for what reasons. They all said they do not have such papers. They ordered me to take spare wheel, radio, jacks and lock the car. The officer said he will call a towing truck and I must get the address from the guy who will be towing my car. The towing truck arrived at 16h50 the driver gave me only two names which are Van Riaad Diep, Makenzie Park. That was the last time I saw my vehicle."
