Dangerous suspect on the run re-arrested

ZAAIPLAAS – The South African Police Service (SAPS) in Zaaiplaas, Hlogotlou outside Groblersdal have re-arrested a 33 year-old suspect who escaped from police holding cells last year, 202o in September.

The suspect, John Mabona, was arrested on Monday 15 February after a tip-off from members of the community that he was admitted at one of the hospitals in the Mpumalanga province. He was badly assaulted by members of the community while allegedly attempting to rape an elderly woman. Police reacted swiftly and found him admitted at the hospital and effected an arrest.

Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, Limpopo Provincial Police Spokesperson, said the suspect allegedly changed his mane at the hospital to disguise his identity.

Ngoepe said the suspect escaped with other inmates who were arrested for rape and robbery with aggravating circumstances. He was arrested for murder and rape after he escaped when the people were doing their routine service in the cells.

“The police pursued them and subsequently managed to re-arrest the other two suspects, but he managed to evade arrest and was on the run until his apprehension on Monday,” said Ngoepe.

He added that the suspect was expected to appear before the local magistrate court soon facing charges of escaping from lawful custody, murder and two counts of rape. Police investigations in all cases are still continuing.
