2019-05-28 06:01

Steenberg police spokesperson Sergeant Wesley Twigg is pleased about the advantageous partnership forged between the community and the police, which has led to the arrest of two suspects related to the murders of Berenice and Herschel Noble.

Twigg confirmed the arrest of a 22-year-old suspect, on the morning of Friday 17 May, who is believed to be in connection with the murder of Herschel.

He was killed in a gang-related shooting on Thursday 25 April, shortly after his mother, Berenice’s funeral.

This arrest came on the same day as the arrest of Berenice’s alleged killer, who was apprehended in the late afternoon.

A 21-year-old suspect was also arrested on Friday 17 May at 17:30, for the murder of Berenice which took place a few weeks ago.

The suspect was arrested by the Steenberg Crime Prevention Unit.

Both suspects appeared at the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Monday 20 May.

Twigg confirmed that both suspects remain in custody, with the bail application hearing of Berenice’s killer set for Wednesday 12 June and the bail hearing for her son, Herschel’s, killer set for Thursday 13 June.

“We are expecting more arrests to be made soon,” said Twigg.
