The woman immediately called the police while the suspect made good his escape on foot.

The 22-year-old woman was taken to the Linden Hospital Complex by police ranks, where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The woman’s body was then escorted to the Pensioner’s Funeral Home, awaiting a post-mortem examination.
