Police arrest suspected cop killer
Three other people are being sought in connection with the policeman’s death.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police arrested a man in connection with the kidnapping and killing of a policeman on Saturday.
The police's Lungelo Dlamini said major Abram Tselana was last seen alive when he withdrew R23,000 at a bank in central Pretoria on the 31 December.
Dlamini said the 51-year-old policeman's body was found four days later with an open wound on the head.
He said three other people are being sought in connection with Tselana's killing.
"[The man] was arrested in Orlando and will be appearing in the Magistrate's Court on Monday."
Meanwhile, a woman whose throat was slit during the kidnapping of the six-month-old baby she was caring for has been discharged from hospital.
A Pakistani couple who allegedly carried out the attack was arrested on Thursday at a house in Fordsburg, where baby Revelations Jones was found.
The couple who had been tenants at the child's parent's house in Bezuidenhout Valley will be appearing in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court on Monday.
"I'm very relieved," said the child's mother, Khanyisile.
"She was attacked by the former tenant - she couldn't speak, she couldn't walk."
