Shortly after a taxi driver was stabbed and robbed of his silver Renault Duster, Flying Squad members arrested the two perpetrators. The taxi driver was attacked on 29 June 2019, in his vehicle by his two passengers in Goodwood.

They fled with his vehicle towards Parow where Flying Squad members intercepted them in Fransie van Zyl Drive. The two suspects aged 17 and 19 were detained on charges of attempted murder and the possession of a stolen vehicle, and are due to make their court appearance in Parow once they have been charged.

In an unrelated matter, members of the same unit arrested two suspects aged 28 and 29 in Riebeek Kasteel on Friday evening for being in possession of 2.8kg dagga. The suspects were apprehended during an intelligence driven operation and will make their court appearance on Monday.
