KOKSTAD police arrested a 25-year-old man for allegedly beating his 24-year-old girlfriend on November 30 after an argument.

“The man got angry after her girlfriend allegedly opened the door while he was bathing.

Neighbours had to rescue the woman from the fuming man.

She was taken to hospital with face and back injuries,” said SAPS spokesman Dumisani Ncongo.

The man appeared in the Kokstad Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of causing grievous bodily harm and was released on R200 bail. The case was postponed to January 18, 2018. - Supplied
