Suspect to appear in court for murder of three senior citizens in PMB
Last month, three elderly people aged between 88 and 92 were attacked by an unknown suspect while they were at the old age homes in Pietermaritzburg CBD. The suspect entered two different old age homes where he would ransack the house, took their belongings, attack the victims by
strangling and stabbing them with scissors before fleeing the scene on foot.
The recent incident took place on Tuesday, 31 July 2018, where an 89-year-old woman was attacked by the suspect. Her throat was also slit and she died at the scene.
The suspect took the TV set, jewellery and fled the scene on foot. The Pietermaritzburg police officers strengthened their patrols around these homes.
Yesterday morning, they arrested a 28-year-old suspect for murder. He was positively linked to three murders that were reported last month. The suspect still being profiled to check if he is linked to other house breaking cases reported in the CBD and surrounding areas. He is appearing tomorrow in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrates' Court for three counts of murders.
