MARAPONG — Two men (17 and 20 year old) were arrested in Marapong after they hit a 27 year old man on his head with a brick on Monday 4 April.
“When asked why they hit the man, they said they only needed the victim’s cell phone. The victim apparently gave them his cell phone after which he ran to the neighbours’ house” W.O. Mokoena, Lephalale police spokesperson says.
According to Mokoena, the man was unconscious and only woke up in the ambulance where he was told that he was beating on his head.
At the time of going to press, the 20 year old man was in Lephalale police holding cells. He appeared in court during the week. The 17 year old was held in the charge office, because he is still a minor. Mokoena says the social workers will deal with his case.
A case of common robbery was opened.
Photos could not be published due to one of the suspects being a minor.
