A 34-year-old man alleged that he received a request on his taxi service app on 30 October at about 4pm to collect passengers and take them to Muldersdrift to pick up an engine block.

He picked up the three men in his silver Toyota and drove them to Muldersdrift. When they arrived at their destination the men asked him not to leave and told him that they would be right back.

When they returned one of them choked the driver with a chain and took his phone and money. They pulled him out of the car and drove off.

“Lieutenant Colonel Mankotsho Setlhare applauded the members for their hard work and for gathering the information which led to the arrest of one of the suspects,” said Constable Slindile Ntuli, spokesperson for the Muldersdrift Police.
