A 25-year-old suspect is expected to appear in the Ganyesa Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 23 April 2019, on a charge of house robbery.
The suspect’s court appearance emanates from his arrest on Wednesday, 17 April 2019, after he and his accomplice robbed a Pastor at one of the local churches in Morokweng village near Ganyesa. It is alleged that the Pastor was at the mission house and praying at Lokalaneng Section, Morokweng, when he heard a noise and went to investigate. He was confronted by the suspects, who tied him up and stabbed him on his head. The suspects then ransacked the house, including the office, where they took cellular phones and cash before fleeing the scene on foot.
The Pastor who managed to identify the suspects during the robbery, untied himself. He then went to one of the suspects’ parental place where he found his goods. The matter was reported to the police, who arrested and detained the suspect. Investigation into the matter including tracing the second suspect, is underway.
