INCIDENT: RECOVERY OF HIJACKED MOTOR VEHICLE
SUBURB: KWADABEKA / INANDA
Earlier this afternoon an alert was received for a motor vehicle that had been hijacked in the Kwadabeka area west of Durban.
The vehicle in question, a white Toyota Hilux had been taken by three armed men who had sped off with the owner’s baby girl still strapped into her car seat.
The Hilux was fitted with a satellite tracking device monitored by Netstar and the owner began relaying information from his smartphone application to the South African Police Services and community WhatsApp groups, who activated the necessary resources as the vehicle was headed towards the Inanda area.
The suspects abandoned the baby in her car seat near the Inanda police station where she was found by passing police members.
The vehicle was tracked and found off the main road in the Amatikwe area. The suspects fled on foot and remain at large.
The little girl was assessed by a Crisis Medical paramedic and was found to be in good spirits and not to have suffered any injury in the ordeal. She was reunited with a very relieved family.
The vehicle was handed over to the South African Police Services for further investigation and processing.
