Manhunt for suspects who hijacked woman’s car for a wedding

“The couple told the police that the car belonged to their driver, whom they had hired for their big day.”

A manhunt is on for hijackers who stole a woman’s car and used it to drive a couple on their wedding day.

A source from Mitchells Plain SAPS said, the bride and groom got a fright when cops approached them on their big day on Thursday, informing them the man they had hired to drive them had stolen the posh Renault Duster SUV earlier that day.

“On Thursday morning, a young woman was at a shop in Park Avenue in Westridge,” says the source.

“Two coloured men in a red car approached her and demanded she hand over the car keys.

“She could not say if she saw a firearm but after the police were called, a witness told them they saw the one with a gun. They forced her out of the car and drove away.”

Shortly after, the hijacking was reported to Mitchell’s Plain SAPS and cops issued an alert for the vehicle and found the car later that same day.

The car was found in Golf Street, Beacon Valley with red ribbons for a wedding.

“The couple told the police that the car belonged to their driver, whom they had hired for their big day.”

Police spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk, confirmed the incident. No arrests have been made yet.
