Three teenage boys were arrested for the murder of a five-year-old Port Alfred boy, Eastern Cape police said.
"After an intensive overnight investigation . three suspects aged 14, 15 and 16 were arrested at their homes in Station Hill today," Captain Mali Govender said yesterday.
Although the boys had been linked to the murder of Rayno Ruiters, Govender said they had not yet been formally charged.
Ruiters' body was found by three boys in a field about one kilometre from his home in Station Hill at about 1.30pm on Tuesday.
His clothes were strewn around his naked body.
He had been missing since 7am on Monday.
Govender could not immediately say whether the arrested boys were the ones who found Ruiters' body on Tuesday.
"There has not been any link yet," she said. - Sapa
