Crimes are allegedly linked to gangsterism
On Saturday, 25 September 2021, it was reported that David Khutledi (34) was at home in Jouberton. At around 10:00 a group of nine males arrived at his house in a white BMW and black Volkswagen Golf. The men were reportedly members of the Al-Qaeda gang.
From there the group of men proceeded to broke the door and forcefully entered the house. They went straight to a bedroom where a 61-year-old woman and children were sleeping. The suspects started attacking Khutledi, which resulted in him being stabbed with yet-to-be-identified objects. Even though his family members tried to intervene, the gang members proceeded to put Khutledi inside the boot of the black Golf and drove off.
The body of Khutledi’s body was later found in a vandalised house in Jouberton and the black vehicle was seized.
