Johannesburg - Two brothers were arrested on Wednesday for the murder of a four-month-old baby boy and the assault of his mother in the Zakhele informal settlement near Rustenburg, North West police said.

Spokesperson Adele Myburgh said that three men had gone to the woman's home at the settlement and demanded to see her boyfriend on Sunday morning.

"The boyfriend was not at home at the time and the men, who were known to the woman, took her and her baby to a soccer field behind the Entabedi hostel."

They assaulted the woman and stabbed her in her back, chest and cut her throat with a knife.

The baby was thrown on the ground on top of a rock and the medical officials declared him dead at the scene.

The woman was taken to a local hospital where she was in a serious but stable condition.

The men were expected to appear in the Bafokeng Magistrate's Court on Thursday to face charges of murder and attempted murder.

Police were searching for the third man.
