SOUTH AFRICA: A third man was arrested today in connection with the gang rape, murder and mutilation of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen, Western Cape police said.
Captain Frederick van Wyk said the 23-year-old man, from the same area, was arrested at 9.30am.
Two other men, aged 21 and 22, were already in police custody, facing murder and rape charges.
Booysen, 17, was left for dead at a construction site near her home, in the early hours of Saturday morning, after visiting a sports bar.
Her death provoked outrage from all sectors of society.
The Congress of SA Trade Unions was planning to deliver a memorandum to the Bredasdorp police station after Booysen’s memorial service on Sunday.
