Lanseria – Police arrested two men for a murder at a tavern in Malatji Village, Lanseria, on Saturday.

The two men, aged 25 and 30, are suspected of killing another 30-year-old man after a fight broke out at the tavern.

Warrant Officer Daniel Mavimbela said the deceased and his friends went to the tavern where they were confronted by four local men, the two suspects amongst them.

"An altercation started. It was followed by a fight inside the tavern."

The police were informed that the fight continued outside the tavern where the dead man and his friends attempted to flee from the alleged attackers.

"Unfortunately the victim was caught and assaulted with an assortment of dangerous weapons. He died on the scene after sustaining serious upper body injuries."

Mavimbela said that a broken golf club and beer bottles were recovered from the scene.

The two men will be charged with murder and are expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court soon.
