Eight male suspects, who were arrested yesterday and on Sunday, will appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court soon to face charges of car hijacking, illegal possession of firearm and ammunition, possession of suspected stolen property and malicious damage to property.

Members of the South African Police Service Flying Squad were called out to a vehicle checkpoint on Sunday afternoon, to search a VW Polo Classic in Gugulethu.

The three occupants of the vehicle indicated that they would stop but sped off instead. Inspector Odwa Makupula said the car was chased until it crashed into a wall.
