Rustenburg - A supermarket was looted and a building torched in Tigane outside Klerksdorp, North West police said on Friday.
"Yesterday, late in the afternoon members of the community went on a rampage and set alight a building that was previously used as a satellite station. They also looted goods from a supermarket, which they allegedly burnt," Brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone said on Friday.
"According to information available at this stage, acts of criminality continued when goods were looted from a tuck-shop and a liquor store while an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) was damaged.
"At this stage, the police are investigating cases of public violence and arson and no one has been arrested in these cases."
The violence was thought to be linked to Tuesday's protests over retrenchments at the Gupta owned Shiva Uranium Mine.
