Man attempt to set girlfriend's shack alight

A 47-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly attempting to set his estranged girlfriend's shack alight in Balfour, Mpumalanga police said.

He tried to set his girlfriend's shack alight in Vlakfontein Farm on Sunday night, said Sergeant Sam Tshabalala.

"She was asleep when she smelt petrol and awoke to find him outside. She contacted police before he could start the fire." Tshabalala said the man ran off when he saw her and was being sought since Sunday.

He was expected to appear at the Balfour Magistrate's Court soon.
