At approximately 10h30 this morning, Marshall Security received multiple calls for assistance with a hijacking in Northway, Durban North. A woman’s white Mercedes Benz was hijacked by three armed suspects and they fled in the direction of North Coast Road.
Members of our Special Operations Team and our Armed Reaction Officers as well as Metro Police were immediately mobilised, and the vehicle was seen on North Coast Road. The suspects crashed the Mercedes and proceeded to fire shots at the teams, who returned fire. The suspects fled on foot and after a short chase Metro Police apprehended one suspect, while Marshall Security apprehended the other. The third suspect hijacked another vehicle and managed to evade capture. This vehicle is fitted with a Netstar tracking device and our Special Operations Team tracked the vehicle and it was recovered.
A firearm and the Mercedes Benz were recovered. The scene is currently being secured and the suspects have been taken into custody for investigation and processing.
