A Eastern Cape man was arrested on Monday for the alleged necklacing of two men in New Brighton, police said.

Necklacing is the placing of a tyre around someone's neck, dousing it with petrol and setting it alight to burn the person to death.

Warrant Officer Dumile Gwavu said the 27-year-old man was allegedly among a group of residents who attacked and necklaced the men after seeing one of them wearing clothes belonging to a man who had been robbed and murdered. -
