Nelspruit: Police in Delmas arrested a 37 year old man yesterday, 24 January 2022 for truck hijacking.

According to the information, the truck was heading from Ermelo to Delmas when the driver stopped and offered a lift to three hitchhikers (two males and a female). He dropped the female off at Delmas Mall and continued on his journey with the other two.

One of the passengers then urged the driver to stop on the side of the road. Upon stopping, the passenger seated behind him strangled him while the other tied him with shoelaces and they both carried and placed him on the truck’s bed, covered him with a blanket and drove off.
