An alleged car break-in suspect was caught in the act by residents of a flat in Orient Hills, Isipingo, during the early hours of Thursday morning.
The suspect’s two other accomplices who were nearby fled the scene in the direction of Teal Place grounds in Lotus Park.
According to a resident, the African male suspect was inside the car when he was spotted. Residents sprung into action and nabbed the suspect inside the car.
There have been several other incidents of this nature in the area and fed-up incensed locals dealt street justice to the suspect whilst waiting for police to arrive.
The suspect was handed over to police.
Residents believe that there is a gang operating in the area and are tired of being soft targets for the prowling criminals.
