WARNING: Hijacking syndicate operating on Higginson Highway

Montclair SAPS are urging motorists, travelling from the N2 off ramp to Higginson Highway and Mobeni, to be wary of their surroundings after receiving numerous reports of hijackings recently.

According to police reports, the complainant was driving towards the off ramp, when a silver VW Polo cut him off. Two occupants alighted the vehicle and pointed at him with a firearm. “They instructed the complainant to move from the driver’s seat, which he did. One suspect jumped into the driver’s seat and the other into the rear passenger seat.

He was then searched and his cellphone was removed. The suspects thereafter stopped at an unknown place in Chatsworth and made the complainant jump into the Polo and was locked inside before he left. He managed to open one of the windows and escape,” said Montclair SAPS communications officer, Cpt Derek Vijiam.
