A 21 year-old male suspect was arrested in Zone 4 at Zonkizizwe for contravention of the protection order.

According to Sergeant Rufus Tema, spokesperson of Zonkizizwe SAPS it is alleged that the complainant, who is the mother of the suspect, warned her son against playing loud music during the night when she is asleep.  The mother later applied for a protection order against his son.

“According to the complainant, the suspect ignored the protection order and slapped her on the face. She reported the matter to the police station and the suspect was immediately arrested,” said Tema.

Meanwhile, one suspect was arrested for assault with the intention to cause grievous bodily harm and two suspects for drinking liquor in a public place. The above suspects were expected to appear in Palmridge court on Monday.
