A 35-year-old man from Khayelitsha has been arrested for alleged murder of a 22-year-old Strandfontein woman and the related burglary at her parent’s home last week.
Lameez Isaacs was allegedly kidnapped by three burglars in Privateer Road in Strandfontein on Wednesday morning.
Neighbours told police that they saw a white VW Golf three occupants parking into the driveway.
A visiting relative discovered that the house had been burgled although there were no signs of forced entry.
A firearm, revolver, DVD player, TV, and a cellphone were taken from the house. The burglars also took a white Toyota Corolla with registration number, CA 897053.
The body of the woman was later found next Baden Powell Drive, near Strandfontein.
She had a single gunshot wound to the head. Police spokesperson Randall Stoffels says that the arrest was made after the man was taken in for questioning on Thursday and was interview throughout the day.
He says that more arrest could follow in the course of the investigation.
Stoffels says the man has been formally charged and will appear at the Mitchells Pain magistrate court on Monday.
