    Two arrested after a high-speed chase and shoot out in Zakaria Park

    Police arrested two alleged hijackers after a high-speed chase ensued along the R553 road and a shootout on Saturday in Zakaria Park.

    BOTH THE ALLEGED HIJACKERS WERE ARRESTED

    According to police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubele the two men, aged 39 and 42, were arrested in Zakaria Park in Johannesburg on Saturday morning.

    “On Saturday 28 August 2021 at around 06:00, the Retrak vehicle recovery team picked up a tracking signal that the hijacked white Toyota Hilux double cab bakkie was stationary in Zonkizizwe, Ekurhuleni at that time.”

    Makhubele said the vehicle was reported as hijacked on Friday, 27 August 2021, at Dawn Park SAPS.

    “As the recovery team was making its way to the location, they picked up another tracking signal that the hijacked vehicle was now moving, and they started following the hijacked vehicle’s movements until they attempted to intercept the hijacked vehicle along the R554 road.”

    He said the occupants of the hijacked vehicle attempted to push the recovery team’s vehicle off the road forcing the recovery team to fire warning shots.

    “A high-speed chase ensued along the R553 road until the suspects drove into a dead-end private road next to Darul Uloom Muslim School before abandoning their vehicle and fleeing on foot.”

    Both suspects were successfully arrested.

    “One of the suspects was allegedly armed with a handgun, and he sustained a gunshot wound on the left leg and the shoulder and was rushed to hospital under police guard to receive medical attention.“The other suspect was free from injuries and was detained at Lenasia South SAPS on charges of possession of a hijacked vehicle as well as possession of an unlicensed firearm. The arrested suspect is expected to appear in court in due course.”
