Two nabbed for attempted hijacking

Two suspects were stopped in their tracks after an attempted hijacking on the corner of Letitia and Fiona Street in Ridgeway around 02:00pm on Monday 25 April.

The suspects were followed from outside the Mondeor Precinct to Ridgeway and shots were fired. A Ridgeway resident then alerted neighbors as well as members of Ridgeway Neighbourhood Watch and Mondeor SAPS Sector 2 CPF.

After Mondeor SAPS Sector 2 patrollers, SAPS, SOS Protec Sure, and Ridgeway Neighbourhood Watch responded to the tip off, the two suspects were caught and arrested by JMPD. The hijacked vehicle was also recovered by JMPD.
