Kotzé narrowly escaped arrest
Johannesburg - Johan Kotzé, the alleged mastermind of the gruesome attack on his estranged wife, narrowly escaped arrest, police said on Wednesday.
A helicopter search has been launched in Limpopo after he abandoned his vehicle, a Toyota Fortuna, in Modimolle, and fled on foot, SAfm quoted police as saying.
Kotzé allegedly forced three men at gunpoint to rape his wife and mutilate her. He also shot and killed his stepson.
Mulaudzi also dismissed rumours on Twitter that Kotzé had been injured in a car crash following a high speed police chase.
"That is not true. We have never confronted him."
A 42-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday for a gruesome assault on a Modimolle woman, Limpopo police said.
Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the man was arrested in Makapanstad, near Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria.
He said police were also tracking the other two men involved in the attack.
"We have two teams - one concentrating on Kotze and the other one tracking down the two men."
