Cape Town - The three teenage daughters of murder-accused businessman Jason Rohde, 47, are reportedly traumatised after he was arrested at their home in Johannesburg early on Tuesday morning.
Netwerk24 reported that between eight and nine police officers arrived at his Bryanston home shortly after 06:00.
Rohde was arrested for the murder of his wife, Susan, 47, whose body was found in a bathroom at the upmarket hotel at Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch on July 24.
Western Cape police would only confirm to News24 that a 47-year-old man had been arrested in Johannesburg.
Rohde's lawyer Daniel Witz told TimesLIVE that the couple's three daughters - an 18-year-old and 16-year-old twins - were "quite traumatised".
Witz told Netwerk24 that Rohde had met with police in Stellenbosch last week and agreed that he would travel to Cape Town at his own expense and hand himself in if they wanted to arrest him. He was told the investigation was continuing.
Rohde was reportedly shocked that police had gone back on their word and had arrested him at home.
Witz is trying to arrange that Rohde appear in court in Gauteng for bail purposes. He is being held at the Randburg police station.
Rohde is the chief executive officer of Geffen International Realty Franchises.
