The determination of the South African Police Service to decisively deal with serious and violent crimes, led to the arrest of four suspects aged between 24 and 46, a day after they allegedly killed two elderly women in Tshilwavhusikhu, Limpopo on Sunday night, 14 June 2020.
About five (05) armed suspects forced entry into a house at Gogobole village under Tshilwavhusikhu policing area, by breaking the window at about 21:30 and allegedly started shooting at the family members, instantly killing a 90-year-old woman and her 60-year-old daughter. One family member escaped unhurt. Nothing was taken from the house.
The horrendous nature of these crimes necessitated a 72-hours activation plan which was immediately implemented. After intensive investigations which barely took less than 24 hours, the police managed to arrest four suspects on 15 June 2020.
Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the remaining suspect is requested to contact Captain Shiela Buys on 082 565 8432, the Crime Stop number 08600 10111 or the nearest police. Callers can remain anonymous.
