Cop SHOT and Injured by truck hijackers in Kagiso

Cops are on the hunt for three suspects after one cop was shot and wounded by the alleged truck hijackers. The incident happened on Tuesday in Kagiso outside Krugersdorp, west of Joburg.

Police in the area spotted a truck that had been reported stolen, and pulled it over.

Gauteng police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubela said a 32-year-old constable went to inspect the truck but as he approached, gunshots were fired at the constable and he fell to the ground.

“The truck then sped off but came to a halt in the next street after it collided with a red VW Golf. The suspects abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot,” he said.

One of the men was nabbed later that day.

Police are now searching for the three remaining suspects.

The critically injured constable was airlifted to hospital.

Makhubela said the stolen truck was recovered and cases of attempted murder and truck hijacking are being investigated.

Meanwhile, Giyani police arrested eight suspects yesterday morning in connection with the murder of Constable Thulani Mhangwani (38) following a business robbery earlier.

Police received a tip-off that five of the suspects had boarded a taxi to Polokwane.

They were bust at the Solomondale/Polokwane intersection after police stopped the taxi matching the description.

Two more suspects were arrested with the help of community members.

The eighth was bust after a tense shoot-out with cops.

Limpopo provincial commissioner Lieutenant-General Nneke Ledwaba praised the police’s swift action in arresting the men.
