Police spokesperson, Col Moatshe Ngoepe says the suspects were positively linked to 14 cases of business robbery in the Seshego policing area.

“While this operation was unfolding, police arrested a 26-year-old man for attempted murder and arson in the Kwena Moloto area, outside Seshego,” Ngoepe added.

The victim (43) was at home when the suspect knocked at her door and asked for access into the home in order to resolve their relationship problem.

“After opening the door, the suspect attacked the victim with a knife and stabbed her several times. He then set the house on fire and fled from the scene,” Ngoepe explained.

The suspect is expected to appear before the Seshego Magistrates Court soon.

Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba, has applauded the Cluster Commander of Seshego, Major General Mokgonyana and his team for the job well done.
