Detectives from Seafield SAPS are seeking the assistance of the community in tracking down the ruthless killers of a man in his 70s.
“According to the severely traumatised spouse of the deceased, at around 11.30 last night Monday January 21, she saw someone at the window and alerted her sleeping husband,” police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender said.
As the man tried to get out of bed, the intruder leaned through the window and shot the victim. He then fled the scene. During the preliminary investigation, forensic experts collected an item of clothing, possibly belonging to the suspect.
Port Alfred’s Cluster Commander, Brigadier Morgan Govender expressed his shock at this incident and said today: “We are deeply shocked by this incident and extend our condolences to the family and friends of the victim. We make an appeal to the community to assist the SAPS with their investigation.”
No arrests have been made and an urgent appeal is made to any person with information that could lead to the arrest of the suspect to contact Warrant Officer Yeza Tyala at Seafield SAPS on 082-442-3814, during office hours on (046) 675-1113 or contact the Crime Stop number on 086-001-0111.
