Pretoria - Two men have been arrested in connection with the murder of a Winterveld man.

Police spokesperson Constable Petunia Chabangu said the man was attacked by the pair around 21:00 on Monday.

"The deceased was walking on the road next to Anna's Tavern when he was approached by two males who were armed with a firearm. They robbed him of his belongings and assaulted him several times on the head until he passed away," said Chabangu.

Police managed to track down the suspects following tip-offs from patrons at the tavern. The suspects were traced and subsequently arrested for the murder.

"They will appear at the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrate’s Court on Thursday," she said.
