Mogwase – The Mogwase police arrested a 25-year-old man for the alleged murder of a two-year-old baby girl in Lerome East, Mogwase on Saturday 16 April. 

Apparently, the little girl was with her father when the man forcefully gained entrance into their shack. He demanded to see his girlfriend who used to stay there. The man did not want to listen to the explanation that the woman was unknown to him and started attacking the man, forcing him to leave the shack. 

According to SAPS, he tried to get back into the shack, but was locked out. With the help of neighbours, he broke the door down. That is when he found the lifeless body of his baby girl on the bed. She sustained head injuries.  

Members of the community allegedly assaulted the suspect and summoned the police and paramedics. The baby girl was taken to hospital but was certified dead on arrival. The suspect who sustained serious injuries was also taken to hospital and is expected to appear before the Mogwase Magistrates’ Court as soon as he is discharged from hospital.
