5 men arrested then released on bail after killing an alleged thief on a farm



An alleged thief caught on a farm was allegedly assaulted by five other men.

North West police spokesperson Sabata Mokgwabone says Phillip le Roux (33), Mike Bass (41), Samuel Modukanele (53), Martin le Roux (60), and Paul Michau (70) are charged with assaulting Petrus Thamaga on Saturday.

Thamaga was caught on the farm and accused of theft. He was then allegedly assaulted. After the incident, workers on the farm called the victim’s family and informed them of the incident. The man was picked up by a family member and taken to the police station. The man later collapsed and died.

The suspects appeared in the Delareyville Magistrate’s Court on Monday where they were each granted bail of R5 000.
