Hartbeespoort SAPS Confirmed at last nights public CPF meeting that there was another Blue Light incident on the Pelindaba road between Necsa Gate 1 and 3 on Wednesday.
Vehicle involved is suspected to be the same white VW Polo with no markings except for blue lights in the front & rear bumpers. 3 male suspects driving this Polo tried to force a double cab bakkie of that stretch of road while pointing two firearms at the victims. Fortunately the bakkie forced them of of the road instead, after which the Polo turn around and drove off back in the direction of Atteridgville. SAP are asking that everyone please be careful and that should anyone see a VW Polo matching this description that it please be reported to them immediately.
For those who might be unaware a gang using possibly the same vehicle and other unmarked vehicles with blue lights terrorized the old N4 highway, the R512 toward Lanseria and other major routes into Hartbeespoort late 2015 and early 2016. The suspects shot at several victims and there vehicles. They are to be considered armed and very dangerous.
