Lingelethu-West SAPS members received a tip off to search a house for all types of narcotics.

On their arrival the police knocked on the door and heard the voice of a male inside the house shouting, asking the other one to flush the drugs down the toilet.

Police forced the door open to gain entry and caught two males trying to destroy evidence.

They searched the entire house and found different types of drugs, cash and ammunition. Both suspects were arrested and detained

last Sunday at approximately 08:00 police were called to a scene in Enkanini informal settlement, in Khayelitsha where they encountered a 50 year old woman who was badly beaten, with burn wounds on her body.

Information gathered had revealed that the victim and the alleged suspects had an argument and that resulted in the assault and further pouring the victim with boiling water.

Two suspects aged 40 and 45 respectively were immediately arrested and were released on bail on Monday. Police condemned violent conduct and provided assistance to the family of the victim.

They further encourage the community not to take the law into their own hands.
