A police tracing team that worked around the clock, ensured the arrest of the suspect and the safe re-uniting of the twins with the grandmother.

The suspect will appear in Court on Monday 16 May 2022.

The Unit Commander Lt Colonel Marli Strydom extended her appreciation to the public for their support and assistance in locating the suspect and commended Sgt Van Rensburg, Sgt Adam’s and Secretary Damoense for spending sleepless nights ensuring the arrest and safe return of the twins.
