The chase started in Halite Street with the security officers hot on the heels of the suspects. In Serrisa Street, the suspects were trapped by members of DMS Security. The suspects shot at the Apcan Security officers who returned fire and hit the criminals’ vehicle. They subsequently lost control of the vehicle and tried to flee on foot. Two were arrested by DMS Security and there is currently a manhunt on for the third suspect.

The vehicle was hijacked in Kempton Park last night.

Residents are advised to be vigilant and not confront the suspect as he is believed to be jumping walls.
