Hawks arrest man in connection with multiple crimes in Gqeberha – SABC News

The Hawks say a man has been arrested by the National Priority Violent Crimes team in Gqeberha in the Eastern Cape on charges of attempted murder, murder and armed robbery.

The Hawks said in a statement that police received information last year about a group of men traveling in two cars on their way to hijack and rob a courier car.

Police spotted the cars in the Peddie area and gave chase. A shootout ensued between the suspects and police.

They say one suspect fell while chasing the back of a pickup truck and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another suspect was arrested and a third fled the scene, but has now been arrested and will appear in Port Alfred Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
