Johannesburg - Four men were arrested for allegedly killing and robbing a man at a mine in Holpan, Windsorton, Northern Cape police said on Friday.

The Northern Cape Hawks as well as the Kimberley tactical response team worked together to arrest three of the men in Windsorton and one in Christiana at around 2am on Friday, said Lieutenant Sergio Kock.

The men, aged between 24 and 43, allegedly shot dead Casper Adriaan Labuschagne, 29, last month while he was working at the mine, Kock said.

They would appear in the Barkly West Magistrate's Court on Monday. - Sapa
