Five Suspects arrested in various cases for Murder, Rape and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle #CrimeMustFall
Western Cape: Strides have been made to address contact crime in the Nyanga policing precinct, which resulted in the arrest of five suspects after incidents of murder and rape were reported.
Two women aged 28 and 34 handed themselves over to police after they had allegedly stabbed a 17 year old girl in Cossovo Informal Settlement. It is alleged that the three had an argument after they had been drinking together. The pair stabbed the victim and she was rushed to hospital where she died on arrival.
In an unrelated incident two men, aged 25 and 28, were also arrested today, 2018-07-02, on two cases of rape.
In yet another case a 30 year old man was also arrested yesterday for being in possession of a stolen vehicle – a white LDV – in Thabo Mbeki informal Settlement.
All five suspects, aged between 25 and 34 are expected to appear in the Athlone, Wynberg and Philippi Magistrate’s Courts facing charges of murder, rape and possession of a stolen vehicle.
