A 32-year-old man was arrested in connection with a triple murder.
Police spokesman Captain FC van Wyk said the man was arrested on Monday, in connection with murder and possession of stolen property in Nyanga.
“He and other community members allegedly assaulted three family members to death on Sunday night in Mesiya Informal Settlement in Kosovo. The three victims were assaulted when they came to confront the suspect who earlier robbed a cellphone from one of the victims,” he said.
Van Wyk said the man was released on parole in July, in a case of attempted murder.
“Clothing items full of blood, a number of stolen appliances, wallets with various bank cards and DVDs were also recovered inside his shack,” he said.
The man is expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrates’ Court today.
