Five arrested after shootout
Robbers’ car grabbed from cop in fatal hijacking
The hijackers struck as Moonilall and his girlfriend, Leona Eserdaw, drove to her home in Newlands. She was not harmed.
Metro Police dog unit Captain Greg Beavon said during yesterday’s incident, one robber was shot in the hip and crawled under a car to hide, where he was found by a police dog.
He said police struggled to get to the scene because of traffic congestion.
Boss manager Raz Ali said he was happy there were no fatalities.
“Our staff … put their lives at risk and protected the public,” he said.
Security guards stopped the robbers as they tried to leave the Commercial City parking garage in a hijacked car.
