A video showing how cops chase down a car and arrest three hijackers on Boyes Drive in Muizenberg went viral on Tuesday.
An unnamed driver took the video after watching the Colt bakkie speed past him, followed by siren-blazing police vehicles, to which he shouts: “Ma se... Jarre.”
The video goes on to show the driver excitedly drawing close to the bakkie, which lost its canopy, and shouting: “Daar rol hy hom in sy p***.”
After seeing this, the driver stops his vehicle while recording as the sounds of shots being fired by the police are heard and police dogs are deployed to corner the suspects.The image of three armed police officers approaching the bakkie and apprehending one suspect is met with a grateful shout of ‘mooi man, mooi man’ by the driver.undefined
Police spokesperson Colonel André Traut confirmed the arrest was made after the Colt bakkie was hijacked in Grassy Park: “One suspect sustained injuries during the accident and the other two were injured after they tried to flee from our K9 dogs.”
