Four men were arrested in Langa following the disappearance of a 31-year-old businessman in Du Noon, Milnerton earlier this week.
According to police spokesperson, Joseph Swartbooi, the men allegedly took the victim from his store in McClaren Drive by force and drove off in a getaway vehicle.
He said the suspects contacted the relatives of the businessman and demanded a ransom in exchange for his freedom.
“The investigating team pursued all information at their disposal in a bid to locate the victim. On Wednesday, the team descended on a residence in Winnie Mandela Road in N2 Gateway, Langa, where they found the victim in the bedroom. Four suspects between the ages of 22 and 26 were arrested and detained,” he said.
They are all facing charges of kidnapping and extortion and will appear in the Cape Town Magistrates’ Court.
