A man was arrested in Elliot in the Eastern Cape on Tuesday in connection with the murder of a policewoman, Western Cape police said.

Investigations into the murder of Constable Rozelle Witbooi led police to Elliot where a 26-year-old man was arrested, Captain Frederick van Wyk said.

“The suspect is currently being held in the Eastern Cape while he is recovering from a gunshot wound.”

The man would be taken to Cape Town for his court appearance soon. He was wounded in Kraaifontein, Cape Town, during a shoot-out on Thursday in which 33-year-old Witbooi was shot dead.

Another man in custody in connection with the murder was recovering in a Cape Town hospital after he was wounded in the legs in the same shoot-out.
