Just as the car slowed down next to Lefa-Ifa Secondary School in Ngema Street, Sithole fired two warning shots and the driver immediately stopped on the side of the road.
The driver then jumped out of the vehicle and started running away, when Sithole shot him and wounded him in the right lower leg.
After the man was secured, police searched the vehicle and found an Allen key, which is often used in the commission of vehicle thefts.
