JOHANNESBURG - The Hawks in the Free State have arrested a man who allegedly stabbed and killed a police constable in Botshabelo earlier this year.
The 24-year-old suspect was handcuffed yesterday after he was sentenced to two years for unrelated robbery cases.
Constable Johannes Putsoeli's body was found in an open field near the local stadium with his pistol, cellphone and wallet missing.
Captain Sfiso Nyakane says the latest arrest brings the number of suspects in custody for the murder to three.
"The suspect and his accomplices will appear in court on Monday facing charges of armed robbery and murder."
