Efforts made by police to deal with the scourge of hijackings in Nyanga resulted in the arrest of three suspects involved in hijacking cases. Two suspects were arrested on Wednesday, 27 March 2018 at about 04:55, for a hijacking that occurred in January 2018, when a family was robbed of their belongings before the suspects drove away with their Toyota Yaris.
The third suspect was also arrested on Wednesday, 27 March 2018 at about 07:30 for a hijacking which occurred earlier this month. The suspect’s accomplices were arrested and he managed to run but an on-going investigation led to his arrest.
The trio, aged 21, 33 and 41, are due to appear in the Athlone Magistrates' Court, and they will face hijacking charges.
