The Woodstock Police arrested a 22 year old male in Fenton road Salt River, for attempted theft of motor vehicle. The arrest follows after police on routine patrols in Salt River, were alerted by a member of the public about possible car thieves that are operating within the Salt River area.

Woodstock police spokesperson Sergeant Hilton Malila says during patrols in Fenton road Salt River, the police noticed a member of the public chasing a young male person up the street.

The police caught up with the person, and a preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect tried to steal the complainant’s car, which was a red VW Golf, which was parked in Fenton road, says Malila.

“It's been alleged that the suspect broke into the complainant car and attach a towing rope to the vehicle.”

The police are pursuing all the leads to arrest the other suspects that sped off in an unknown vehicle, as the complainant approached them, says Malila.

The 22 year old suspect, currently in police custody, will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate court tomorrow on a charge of attempted theft of motor vehicle.
