The SAPS Kuruman Trio Task Team arrested three men for being in possession of an alleged hi-jacked vehicle. On Friday, 16 November 2018 at about midnight the men in a suspicious looking vehicle shot at the police and the neighbourhood watch members in Kuruman. Police gave chase and the suspects abandoned the white Toyota Corolla and fled by foot into the veld on the N14, just outside Kuruman.

Three of the five male suspects were arrested by the police. After further investigation it was found that the vehicle was hi-jacked in Pampierstad during July 2018.

Police are also looking at possibly linking the suspects with a house robbery that took place in Kuruman, during August 2018.

Police request that anyone with information about the incident and the whereabouts of the other two male suspects, should please call D/Capt Victor Mabena on 063 691 1089. Police also warn the public not to approach these suspects as they are assumed to be armed and dangerous. The investigation continues.
