The North-West Police have confirmed that a suspect has been arrested in connection with the assault incident in a parking lot in Klerksdorp.
Col. Police spokeswoman Adele Myburgh said the 33-year-old man is expected to appear in court today on charges of attempted murder and assault with intent to seriously injure.

The incident was reported at 1.25pm on Sunday.
“According to information, there was someone who assaulted two men. The one victim is 32 years old and was admitted to a local hospital with serious brain damage,” says Myburgh.
The other victim filed a case with the Klerksdorp police.
