As taxi violence and protests grip Delft, a man has been arrested and a taxi impounded in the area following a high-speed chase.
Members of the Law Enforcement Neighbourhood Safety Team were patrolling when they spotted a suspicious looking taxi on the corner of Delft Main and Voorbrug Road, earlier on Tuesday.
Three armed men jumped out of the taxi and fled. One of the gunmen opened fire after officers gave chase. The taxi crashed into a ditch during the chase, and the driver escaped.
Law Enforcement spokesperson Wayne Dyason says it appears the officers’ intervention prevented a potentially violent attack on other taxi drivers at the Delft Taxi Rank.
“The officers gave chase and one of the suspects opened fire. One suspect was arrested during the chase, but the three others managed to get away.”
Taxi violence in Delft has claimed three lives within a week.
