K9 police members spotted the alleged hijacked vehicle in Henry Ford Road, Port Elizabeth, whilst on duty. They apprehended three males suspects.

“It is alleged that the 38-year-old male complainant was driving his Mazda 323 in the Gunguluza area in Kwanobuhle, when he was stopped by the males who requested a lift,” said police spokesperson Captain Gerda Swart.

“One of the males suddenly cocked a firearm and instructed the driver to move to the back whilst another male got into the driver’s seat. The suspects dropped off the complainant and sped off in the direction of Port Elizabeth.”
