Police arrested two men yesterday afternoon after they tried to hi-jack a taxi driver in Delft-South. A third suspect is in hospital receiving medical attention.

The taxi driver and his guard stopped to pick up three males in Boys street, Delft South.

While driving one of the males allegedly pointed a gun at the driver and the guard. They were threatened to continue driving.

The guard tried to escape and jumped out of the taxi. He then made police patrolling the area aware of the incident.

The police followed the vehicle and pulled the taxi off Hindle road.

When police approached the vehicle one of the suspects fired shots at them says Captain Elliot Sinyangana.

Police shot back at the suspect and wounded him in the back. The other two were arrested and the wounded suspect was taken to hospital.

They are facing charges of Vehicle hi-jacking, attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
