Provincial police spokeswoman, Col Thembeka Mbhele, stated that investigating officers from the Provincial Investigation Unit worked throughout the night to solve the murder case that had baffled many in the quiet suburb of Overport.

“Their resilience yielded positive results when two suspects, aged 32 and 36, were arrested,” she said.

Col Mbehle confirmed that police officers proceeded to the Inanda area where the first suspect, aged 36, was arrested. The 32-year-old suspect was then arrested in Overport.

Cases of murder and robbery are under investigation at Mayville SAPS. It is alleged that one of the suspects worked at the building in which the victim lived.
