SAPS Kamesh arrest murder suspect

GQEBERHA – Thorough investigations by SAPS Kamesh detectives led to the successful arrest of a 39-year-old alleged murder suspect.

It is alleged that on Saturday, 28 January 2023 at about 18:55, the suspect chased his girlfriend (31) with a knife. The victim ran into a house in Corkwood Street, Tamboville where she was repeatedly stabbed. A community member who attempted to intervene, was also stabbed in the right arm.

As the woman collapsed outside of the house, the suspect continued to stab her. She succumbed to her injuries and died on the scene. Early this morning, 29 January 2023, the suspect was apprehended by SAPS Kamesh detectives.

He is due to appear in the Kariega magistrates' court soon on charges of murder and assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm. The motive for the murder is yet to be established.
