CAPE TOWN - Four people have been arrested in connection with a suspected mob justice killing in Khayelitsha.

A 17-year-old boy was beaten to death after he was accused of a burglary in the Harare area.

The suspects are to appear in court tomorrow.

The police's Frederick van Wyk says four arrests have been made.

"Evidence led detectives to a shop in Harare where he was arrested for further investigations. This resulted in the arrest of three more suspects. Two vehicles used in the execution of this crime were also confiscated for investigative purposes."
