Captain arrests 4 herself

The station commander of Hoopstad herself arrested four murder suspects after some of her police officers were confronted by an angry mob.

On Saterday (01/06) angry community members allegedly beat Molefi Moses Kubu (36) to death after he had stabbed a 29-year-old man in the face in Saverite in Hoopstad.

The stabbing was reported to the police and a case was registered.

The 29-year-old victim also told the members of the community of the incident. Community members forced Kubu out of his house and severely assaulted him. He died from his injuries.

The Hoopstad police were called to the scene, but the residents threatened to burn the police vehicle.

“The members then sought back-up from the station commander, Capt. Lettie van Eeden, and her team”, says Capt. Stephen Thakeng, police spokesperson.

“On arrival four suspects aged 32 to 37 years old were identified and arrested by Van Eeden.

“The suspects were charged with murder and have already appeared in the Hoopstad Magistrate’s Court. They have been remanded in custody.”
