The gold miner, who is accused of launching a vicious attack on two brothers at a mining camp in Aurora on Tuesday, leaving one of the brothers dead and the other nursing wounds, has been arrested.

β€œHe was arrested. He was brought to Bartica [Police Station] today,” the Commander said.

The man is accused of fatally chopping Linden resident, 32-year-old Raphael Cadogan and his younger brother Clive Cadogan in the early hours of Tuesday mornng.

The older brother was pronounced at the scene while the younger brother was admitted to the Bartica Hospital with injuries.

β€œHe received injuries and he is hospitalised. He was taken to Bartica [yesterday] and from all indication he may be referred to Georgetown, maybe,” the Divisional Commander said.
