Two family members (mother and daughter) and the mother’s boyfriend were arrested shortly after a 32 year old man was found lying on the side of the road in Vastrap in Booysens Park this morning, 23 September 2018.

He succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

His mother (54), sister (21) and his mother’s boyfriend (57) were arrested and detained on a charge of murder. They are expected to appear in the Port Elizabeth magistrate court on Tuesday, 25/09.
