At approximately 21:30, HCW/Vetus Schola TRT Wayne Heylen received a call from a member of public that his vehicle had been hijacked at gunpoint in van der Stel Street.
Whilst on scene we received info that SAPS had spotted the vehicle heading into Lwandle and that they were giving chase.
HCW/Vetus Schola armed response officer Ryno spotted the vehicle and gave chase, giving location updates. TRT picked up the vehicle in Lwandle and giving chase, ending up being the chase vehicle followed by SAPS. The suspects then opened fire and fire was returned, causing the suspects to lose control and abandoning the vehicle fleeing on foot.
An extensive search by SAPS and various entities ensued and one suspect was arrested. Investigations are ongoing.
Well done to all who were involved!!
