According to News24 reporter, Cebelihle Mthethwa, two suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of Emaan Solomons aged 7 and a 31-year-old man in Ocean View, Cape Town on Tuesday.

Mthethwa writes that Western Cape police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa said, “Two men, aged 19 and 27, were arrested following the murder of a seven-year-old girl who was caught in the crossfire between rival gangs in Libra Street, Ocean View,”

“Both suspects are expected to appear in the Simon’s Town Magistrate’s Court on Friday 28 February 2020.”

According to a report by EWN, Brigadier Potelwa issued a warning, pleading with the community not to take the law into their own hands.

“A stern warning is issued to all communities to refrain from taking the law into their own hands as doing so will leave the police with no option but to arrest and charge those responsible. The forces on the ground will remain there until calm is restored.”
