Johannesburg - A 28-year-old circumcision teacher was arrested for allegedly assaulting and killing a 44-year-old initiate in Potchefstroom, North West police said on Sunday.

Eight other initiates attending the school alleged that the teacher had been assaulting them, said spokesperson Adele Myburgh.

The man was found on Friday with multiple injuries all over his body. When the police arrived, the teacher ran away, but he was later caught.

He was expected to appear in the Potchefstroom Magistrate's Court on a charge of murder, police said.
