In the first incident in Eerste River, a female traffic officer was hijacked of her patrol car and personal belongings shortly after midnight.
Traffic Services spokesperson, Maxine Bezuidenhout, says the woman was not harmed.
She says the officer had just dropped a colleague at home after their shift, when she was accosted by a group of suspects.
“They took off, and information from the SAPS is that the traffic vehicle was then used to hijack another vehicle.
“Both vehicles were later recovered on Old Faure Road close to the military base.
“The traffic officer was unharmed, but extremely traumatised by the incident. She is receiving counselling and support from the department.”
Six hours later a Law Enforcement officer was hijacked in Nyanga East.
Law Enforcement spokesperson, Wayne Dyason, says seven skelms approached the officer at 6am and threatened him with a firearm before they took his City-issue vehicle.
“The officer was left behind unharmed. The vehicle was recovered a short while later, through the use of tracking technology in Vulyolwethu Road, Crossroads.
“According to witnesses, stolen vehicles have been left in this road before. The battery of the car was taken but the keys left in the ignition.”
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call the City’s Public Emergency Communication Centre on 021 480 7700.
