Three Swazi Nationals and one South African male were arrested by RUSA (Reaction Unit South Africa) for a hijacking that occurred last Friday (25 March 2022).
The victim sought assistance from RUSA’s Headquarters after he saw four-man in a white Nissan bakkie parked outside a bottle store in Redcliffe, KZN.
The Zimbabwean National reported that he was hijacked off his Opel Corsa bakkie on Friday night around 11 pm.
He managed to record the registration of the vehicle on the night of the incident and was in the company of a witness who confirmed that the Nissan bakkie with the registration was used to commit a crime.
Reaction officers then proceeded to the tarven and interviewed the suspects who were standing next to the bakkie drinking alcohol.
The suspects contradicted themselves concerning their location on the night of the hijacking.
It is said that one of the Swazi Nationals Arrived in South Africa on Saturday afternoon and was supposed to drive back the hijacked vehicle to his home country.
The Durban SAPS K9 unit was called to the scene and on arrival, they searched the vehicle and surrounded the area with a specialised explosive dog.
The firearm was not found and while officers were attending to the scene they were informed that they were terrorising residents in the area.
The suspects have since been arrested and handed over to SAPS Verulam for further investigation
