Johannesburg - Four people were arrested for allegedly kidnapping and killing a man they accused of theft in Sydenham, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

Colonel Vincent Mdunge said the men, including a police reservist, were arrested on Tuesday night.

They allegedly kidnapped a 25-year-old man and beat him to death because he had stolen brass objects from a church.

The men were expected to appear in the Durban Magistrate's Court soon.
