A 21-year-old woman was arrested yesterday in Kagiso, west of Johannesburg, for allegedly orchestrating a hijacking, Gauteng police said.

She allegedly asked a man to give her a lift to a friend’s house in Kagiso, Warrant Officer Solomon Sibiya said.

When they arrived at the house the woman’s friend was waiting at the gate for them with four men.

One of the men held the driver at gunpoint and demanded cash. He allegedly fired a shot at the car.

They then allegedly beat him up and took two cellphones, money and drove off with his Mercedes Benz, registration number ZDD 481 GP.

A hijacking docket was opened and the 21-year-old woman was expected to appear in the Krugersdorp Magistrates Court on Monday.

Police were still looking for the four men.
