Captured hijackers to be sentenced in Randburg

Two suspects will appear in court to face charges of hijacking and theft of a motor vehicle.

Two suspects aged 24 and 32 will appear in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court to face charges of hijacking.

When he heard a knock at the window, he opened the door thinking that it was his girlfriend, but instead was confronted by the three suspects.
