A second person has been arrested following a robbery at the house of the Waterberg District mayor in Limpopo in February.
Six people robbed the house on Sunday, 14 February, said police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.
"Four unknown armed men accompanied by two women - driving in three cars - stopped at the gate of the mayor's house and asked the security guard to see the mayor. But before he could respond, they attacked him, entered the house and also tied up everybody inside before they searched the house," Ngoepe said.
The security guard was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
The robbers made off with a Toyota Legend 45. The vehicle was later found abandoned outside Lephalale.
Ngoepe said Antonio Lucas Joao, 31, was arrested at a hideout in Gauteng shortly after the incident.
The investigative team made a breakthrough when they arrested a second person - a 34-year-old woman - in Lephalale on Tuesday, Ngoepe said.
She was expected to appear in the Phalala Magistrate's Court on Friday. Joao was expected to appear in court again on 15 April.
Ngoepe said the manhunt for the remaining suspects was continuing. He urged anyone with information to contact Colonel Malesela Mogale at 071 479 2329.
