Residents loot truck after attempted hijacking

Police are looking for these two suspects in connection with an attempted hijacking.

On 30 August at 9.30am, a man and his crew were transporting a truck full of groceries for the company they work for.

In the vicinity of Kafue Street, Tshepisong, they were confronted by two men. One of them, who was armed with a firearm, ordered the truck to stop.

The men also ordered the driver to hand over his wallet and cellphone. The driver and his team were able to escape into an open field through the passenger side door.
