Two arrested in suspected fatal mob attack
The deceased was assaulted after he apparently stabbed and robbed a 14-year-old boy.
CAPE TOWN - Two people have been arrested for allegedly killing a suspected mugger during a mob attack in George in the Southern Cape.
The deceased was assaulted after he apparently stabbed and robbed a 14-year-old boy of his electronic tablet yesterday.
The man's shack was also demolished along with two others where suspected drug dealers live.
The police's Malcolm Potje says the 31-year-old man was later taken to hospital.
"He was in a critical condition but he succumbed to the injuries he sustained late last night. The initial docket of attempted murder is now being changed to murder. We have arrested two suspects who are in detention now."
