A 30-year-old man was arrested for allegedly beating to death a suspected robber in Qokolweni, Eastern Cape police said on Wednesday.
The man and a group of residents saw a 20-year-old man running out of a house with a TV at 9 on Tuesday night and started assaulting him with whips, Lieutenant Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said.
The suspected thief died soon after from his injuries.
Fatyela said more arrests were imminent. The man would appear in the Mthatha Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
