Yesterday Morning 8am
As they were entering Zenith rd from Vanguard Dr, into Vanguard Estate, they saw Saps officers by an empty taxi they had pulled over. The residents saw that the one officer was backing away from the taxi and that the other officer was trying to arrest the taxi driver.
The taxi driver then broke loose and ran down Zenith rd towards Mangaan rd passing the two Street Security Guards standing on their bicycles. The Officer gave chase and another resident saw this and gave the Officer a lift and tried to follow the taxi driver but had lost him in Heideveld rd.
The first resident came from behind and saw the taxi driver, thought to have a fire arm, as he must have been hiding in one of the premises. The taxi driver ran down Heideveld rd into Granite rd where the second resident and officer cornered him in Doman and 2nd Avn. He tried again to get away but more of the residents came out and the Officer arrested the taxi driver.
Thank you to the two residents for assisting the officer in performing his duties.
Good to know we all play a part in combatting crime and by doing so remain vigilante in our surroundings.
