According to Eyewitness News three suspects have been arrested on kidnapping and several other charges.

Siwaphiwe was in the back seat of the white Toyota Yaris stolen from her mother at gunpoint at a shopping centre in Greyville on Friday morning.

She managed to grab her eight-year-old son but Siwaphiwe was still inside when the hijackers drive off.

When the Yaris was found abandoned without the baby inside, police launched a massive search for the infant, offering a R250 000 reward for any information.
