 A 25-year-old youth from Waterworks near Zuurbekom was last night around 22:40 pm arrested for the Murder of a 22-year-old victim which occurred on the 20th of August 2020 at approximately 21:30 pm at Zuurbekom.

According to the witness he saw what looked like two people fighting and he noticed when the now deceased ran and fell on the ground and the other one ran to the different direction. He went closer to investigate while calling the police and an Ambulance.

The victim sustained one wound on his chest and he was declared dead on the scene. A Murder was opened and preliminary investigation was conducted by D/Sgt Shiwe Mkone who could not rest until she knew exactly what happened. She worked tirelessly on the case until she arrested the suspect and recovered the Murder weapon. He will be charged with Murder and is expected to appear before the Westonaria Magistrates’ Court soon.

The Branch Commander Lt Colonel Boitumelo Sigwili commended the member for her swift reaction and for ensuring that the suspect was arrested shortly after the offence was committed. “This is the kind of attitude we expect from each and every member”, she concluded.
