Capt Adele Myburgh said a 24-year-old man was arrested in Jouberton for stabbing a man to death in an argument on Saturday.
“The suspect took a knife and [fatally] stabbed the victim in his neck.”
Police arrested the man at the scene.
Myburgh said a teenage boy from Madikwe was arrested on Saturday, by police acting on a tip- off, for stabbing to death a 20-year-old man.
In Mmabatho, a man was arrested for a rape on Friday.
“A group of friends were spending some time together and the victim felt tired and decided to go and sleep. The suspect allegedly came into her room and raped her,” said Myburgh.
Another man was arrested on Friday for breaking into a house, raping a mentally ill 19-year-old woman and stealing food, she said.
Police said the woman’s family was at a night vigil, but regularly phoned her. They became worried when she did not answer her cellphone and returned to find that she had been raped and the house had been burgled. -SapaShare on Facebook
