South African Police manhunt has caught a hangover Park man for allegedly beating his two-year-old daughter to death, Western Cape police said.
The man identified as Christopher Williams was arrested on Thursday night in Vygieskraal in Athlone, Lieutenant-Colonel André Traut said.
“He is being detained on a charge of murder.”
Williams is expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
The toddler was declared dead at the Hanover Park Day Hospital last week on Friday.
At the time Traut said it was not known why and how the child was beaten.
According to a police source, the post mortem found the child had been severely beaten.
“It was so brutal the child was swollen from the face to her legs,” the source said.
Williams is alleged to be a gangster.
