Three arrested for murder of Pretoria man

Three men have been arrested following the murder of a 61-year-old man during a house robbery in Erasmia, Pretoria West, police said on Tuesday.

He was attacked when he returned to his home on a plot in Rhenosterspruit around noon on Monday, Constable Tumisang Moloto said.

“They tied him up and assaulted him with a sharp object. He died on the scene,” said Moloto.

They ransacked the house and took electrical appliances, clothing, and laptops, and stole a gold Toyota Land Cruiser and a Hyundai H1 minibus. The men were arrested on a plot in Rhenosterspruit on Tuesday morning following a tip-off.

The Toyota Land Cruiser was recovered in Lenasia on Monday night. The suspects were expected to appear in the Atteridgeville Magistrate’s Court soon on charges of murder, house robbery, and car theft.
