Four suspects have been arrested in New Brighton in Port Elizabeth in connection with the murder of two women in Peddie.
The suspects’ arrests follow after a team of police detectives worked day and night to track down the suspects.
Police found the bodies of Boniswa Toba, 74, and her daughter-in-law, Cingiswa Caroline Toba, 37, in the Celetyuma settlement in Peddie on April 12.
Both women suffered multiple stab wounds. Police were able to find that the victims cell phones and other household items were stolen.
Col. Police spokesman Priscilla Naidu said it was revealed in the investigation that a suspicious Audi A3 was found in the neighborhood where the murders took place.
Further investigations led detectives to New Brighton where they arrested four suspects (three men and a woman) on Friday. They are between 20 and 57 years old. “They were arrested at various homes in New Brighton,” says Naidu.
