A policeman based at the Nyanga Police Station has been arrested for allegedly hijacking a VW Golf from a car sales business.

According to police spokesperson, Captain Eliott Sinyangana, the policeman went, in uniform, to the business in Lansdowne and showed interest in buying the vehicle, which the owner then allowed him to test-drive whilst accompanied with another salesperson.
They stopped at a nearby garage and the policeman threatened the salesperson at gunpoint - telling him to get out of the vehicle.
Once the salesperson alighted, the police drove off towards Philippi.

A police patrol from the Lansdowne Station was alerted and caught the policeman in Lansdowne Road. He was arrested and faces a charge of robbery with aggravated circumstances. He is due to appear at the Athlone Magistrates Court today.
