Four men believed to be linked to several robberies at the TLC Children’s Home in Eikenhof, south of Joburg, were arrested on Tuesday after police received information from local residents.
Last Wednesday, three teenagers were abducted from the children’s home after a hijacked City of Joburg ambulance was used to gain entry onto the property.
The boys were forced into the ambulance, taken to a remote location, beaten and robbed of their possessions, including their shoes and cellphones.
Later that evening, police noticed the ambulance driving recklessly, tried to pull it over, and a shootout erupted. The criminals escaped on foot. Two paramedics were injured.
