After the car was stopped, the woman was able to tell the police officers what had happened.
The three suspects had forced the woman into the car and were driving around looking for places to withdraw her money.
According to IOL, the City has confirmed the suspects have been arrested and charged with theft and kidnapping.
Mayco Member for Safety and Security Alderman JP Smith said the victim was incredibly grateful to the officers for intervening when they did, “but this could have had a very different outcome”.
Last week, the local city police recorded multiple arrests, with suspects being charged with various criminal activities including kidnapping, drug charges and traffic violations.
“Law enforcement officers made 283 arrests and the Public Emergency Communication Centre (PECC) received 2,039 calls over the past weekend. Of these, 741 were calls for medical assistance and 110 were to report incidents of violent assault.”
