Manenburg police yet to make an arrest after dog killing four months ago

Brigadier Enolium Joseph, station commander at Manenberg police station, has confirmed that no arrests have been made after a dog was tortured and killed by a group of boys in the area.

In July footage was released on social media showing a group of boys aged between 7 and 18 killing a dog. Cape of Good Hope SPCA said there were disappointed that the case has not resulted in anything as police said there are more pressing crimes to deal with.

Brigadier Joseph says the matter is still under investigation and will not comment further.

It is a serious matter and we don't want to say we prioritise certain matters more than others.
