JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Police Commissioner Lesetja Mothiba has urged Reiger Park residents not to take the law into their own hands.

Residents of the East Rand community have vowed to avenge the death of four-year-old Taegrin Morris who was dragged from a hijacked vehicle at the weekend.

Mothiba has appealed to residents of the East Rand community to let the police do their job.

"We want to appeal to them to work with the police."

Eyewitness News has seen a picture of the alleged hijackers which is circulating, calling on residents to make the attackers suffer just like the Taegrin did.

The police commissioner has strongly condemned this.

"If a suspect is identified please inform the police."

Police say they hope to make a breakthrough in the case soon.

Earlier the Morris family said they are confident police will put his killers behind bars.

The little boy's family said they hope that those responsible for his death will be brought to book.

His mother Chantel Morris added she believes after this traumatic experience the community will be able to find peace one day.

Meanwhile, police are now offering a R100,000 reward to anyone with information on the hijackers.
