Hijackers on spree

Nine hijackings have been reported since the beginning of July by motorists using the R57 from Zamdela towards Heilbron.

The SAPS in Heilbron are warning motorists to be extra vigilant of hijackers on this stretch of road.

The most recent incident took place on Saturday, 18 July, at about 17:20.

A motorist was stopped by four unknown men on the R57 Deneysville Road pre­tending to seek directions.

When he stopped, they attacked and overpowered him, and then put him in the back of the car and drove off.

The hijackers dumped the victim, who was badly assaulted, in an open field near Randfontein in Gauteng.

Victims have also been overpowered after stopping next to the road to pick up hijackers who pretend to be hitchhikers.

Once they are in the vehicle, they overpower the driver. Victims are normally dropped off in an open field somewhere along the route.

The hijackers have in most of the cases been described as three or four Zulu-speaking males who operate from 17:00 in the afternoon.

They have been seen driving in a white Polo, white Ford Ranger, white Fortuner and a white Toyota Corolla.

Three of the suspects are armed with handguns. They target any type of vehicle.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective WO Leon de Klerk on 072-484-9046.
