A normal stop and search by Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) in Diepkloof, Soweto, has saved the life of a Germiston man who was hijacked.
The police found a victim of a hijacking locked in the boot of his own car.
JMPD spokesperson, Edna Mamonyane, says a police officer called for assistance from other officers when she heard a noise of someone screaming and banging on the inside of a car boot.
The police found the wounded owner of the car stuffed in the boot, and the three men have been arrested.
I said to my female officer, this is a great job. For them not to panic when they suspect someone, it helps, now we have saved someone's life.— Edna Mamonyane, JMPD spokesperson
