Police have arrested several suspects in connection with a botched hijacking that happened in Durban on Christmas Eve.

CCTV footage that emerged late last week, showed a Tracker official apprehending two men from a parked vehicle at a petrol station on Dunbar Road.

eThekwini police’s Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane told News24 that these two men were now being linked other to crimes.

Prior to their arrest, three other men had been arrested on possession of suspected stolen property and now all five men are suspected to be in cahoots.

Subsequently, they all appeared at the Durban Magistrates Court on 27 December for their crimes.

The suspects are said to be aged between the ages of 24 and 31.

Zwane however, could not provide any further  information on the outcome of the men’s court appearance.

"Court appearance results are unknown at this stage since the docket is still at court," he said.
