Police have arrested three men in connection with the murder and rape of Elsa Blignaut, 83, at her home in New Muckleneuk.
It is believed the woman was tied up and strangled on on January 25, a day after celebrating her birthday. Her attackers stole two small television sets.
Police spokesperson Inspector Duane Lightfoot said the arrests followed information from the public and the prompt response by the Trio Task Team and members of the Brooklyn SAPS.
“The three suspects are all in their mid-thirties and were arrested in Ga-Rankuwa and Atteridgeville.” – Barry Bateman
