Suspect arrested for murder of a 33-year-old man on Strandfontein Road

A 38-year-old man was arrested for the murder of a 33-year-old man who was shot and killed on Strandfontein Road on Tuesday.


The joint operation between the Anti-Gang Unit, Public Order policing (POPS), and Grassy Park assisted by other law enforcement agencies, led the investigation to a residence where four suspects were arrested and brought in for questioning.

‘’Interrogation of the suspects resulted in the detention of a 38-year-old male for the murder. The other three were released as they could not be positively linked to the crime. The suspect is due to make his court appearance in Wynberg once he has been charged,’’ said Colonel Andrè Traut.


Furthermore, a 35-year-old female and a 43 year old male were arrested on drug related charges. Traut says a substantial quantity of drugs was also confiscated.

‘’Ongoing violence in the Grassy Park area has been prioritized and additional deployments of the AGU and other police units will remain in the area until such time that stability has been restored.’’

Traut appealed to the public to come forward with any information relating to the incident.

‘’We make an urgent appeal to the community to come forward with information that can assist us with our investigations and interventions so that we can create an environment where the community is protected from gangsterism.’’
