Durban police arrested a man and a woman who were travelling in a hijacked E Class Mercedes Benz along the N2 on Monday.
Kyle van Reenen, Marshall Security spokesperson said their security company was alerted to a hijacking that took place in Empangeni, north of KwaZulu-Natal.
Van Reenen said the car was fitted with a tracking device and the signal indicated that the car was travelling on the N2 towards Durban.
