Putfontein SAPS spokesperson Constable Justice Ramaube said it is alleged the duo stoned to death a man believed to be the son of a local councillor after they mistakenly took him for an intruder.

“Police were then called to the scene as the community assaulted the duo after they found the victim’s body,” said Ramaube.
