On Friday evening, the body of a 36-year-old Charles Vergotine was discovered by his house mate. The woman found the body in their Green Point apartment.

According to a police statement, the deceased was found in the bathroom with injuries to his face. He was fully clothed and the preliminary autopsy report suggests that the cause of death could have been strangulation.

With the assistance of Beaufort West Police, Sea Point Police arrested a suspect in Beaufort West during the early hours of Saturday morning.

Inspector Bheki Xulu from the Sea Point Police department says that the suspect was on a bus traveling to Bloemfontein at the time of the arrest.

“The Sea Point investigation team managed to track down the suspect who was on his way to Bloemfontein. Early on Saturday morning, the suspect was arrested in Beaufort West where police found that he was in possession of the deceased’s items,” said Xulu.

The suspect is expected to appear in Cape Town Magistrate’s Court this week.
