Johannesburg - A man accused of housebreaking and theft was seriously injured by a group in Mthatha on Monday, Eastern Cape police said.

Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said 11 men aged between 18 and 29 were arrested for assault.

Those arrested were expected to appear in the Mthatha Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
