Four suspects arrested after threating driver of delivery vehicle in Kraaifontein
Four suspects are expected to appear in the Blue Downs Magistrate court soon, after they were arrested on Tuesday, for kidnapping the driver of a delivery vehicle and ordered him to pay cash or else face the risk of being killed.
The police’s Jospeh Swartbooi said that a 39-year-old man was driving a light delivery vehicle near to Joostenberg Vlakte when he was stopped by the driver of a white Toyota Quantum.
‘’When he failed to stop the driver chased after him and forced him off the road. Four unknown males approached demanding cash. The suspects drove the complainant to a nearby financial institution where he was forced to withdrew cash. Alarm was raised with Kraaifontein police who responded to the complaint and found the Toyota Quantum parked near to Sandringham Road. They searched the vehicle and confiscated cell phones and cash.’’
‘’Further interrogation led to the recovery of the keys to the complainant’s vehicle which were found in the possession of one of the occupants. The four males were arrested and detained on charges of kidnapping, extortion and possession of presumed stolen property,’’ added Warrant Officer, Joseph Swartbooi.
