Ivory Park Police have on Thursday (20 May 2021) following months of information gathering, arrested an Ivory Park man for a murder he allegedly committed in December.

The 36 year old suspect assaulted another man whom he accused of being in a relationship with his girlfriend. He used a stone as an instrument of the assault, and stopped only when the deceased fainted. The deceased succumbed to his injuries about four days after the assault.

Shortly after the assault the suspect vanished from the Ivory Park policing precinct, but since then our detectives have been gathering information to establish his whereabout. It was finally established that he was in the Giyani area of Limpopo, where he was traced and eventually caught last week Thursday.

Brigadier David Mbongeni Ngcobo, the station commander of the Ivory Park SAPS, has applauded the two murder investigators for their continuing investigation into this murder, and the arrest that followed as a result of their efforts.

” The suspect has no choice, but to come here and account for his alleged transgression. The family of the victim deserve to know what exactly led to their loved one death, and the suspect is better placed to tell us,” said Brigadier Ngcobo.

The suspect appeared in the Tembisa Magistrate Court on Monday, 24 May 2021.
