Western Cape - A third man was arrested on Friday in connection with the gang rape, murder and mutilation of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen, Western Cape police said.
Captain Frederick van Wyk said the 23-year-old man, from the same area, was arrested at 9.30am.
“He will be charged and will also appear in the Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday.”
Two other men, aged 21 and 22, were already in police custody, facing murder and rape charges.
National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) Western Cape spokesman Eric Ntabazalila said the 21-year-old would appear in court on Monday. Once the man had appeared, the case would be postponed to Tuesday to coincide with the appearance of the 22-year-old, who Booysen identified shortly before she died in hospital.
