Johannesburg - Two more men were arrested on Friday afternoon in connection with the murder of an elderly Kempton Park couple, bringing the total to four, Gauteng police said.
“Police have arrested two further suspects and we are expecting more arrests in the coming days,” Captain Jethro Mtshali said.
Earlier on Friday, police arrested two men following a tip-off from local residents. The men, in their 30s, were caught in the Sethokga hostel in Tembisa. After police questioned them, the two helped police recover two TVs, a computer, and two laptops.
“The items were stolen during the house robbery where the elderly couple were found,” said Mtshali.
Pikkie Stassen and his wife Rina, both in their 70s, were found dead in their Jacobus Street home on Monday morning, Beeld reported.
Their daughter Karien Linley found their bodies when she arrived to drop off her one-year-old son with them. Pikkie Stassen was found stabbed to death in the garage, with his hands bound. His wife's body was in the bedroom. She appeared to have been strangled.
The men would appear in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court soon, Mtshali said.
