Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)

Orlando Pirates player Thembinkosi Lorch was arrested on Monday following allegations of domestic violence against him towards his girlfriend.

The 27 years old left-winger has not had a good 2019/20 season ending as he was also recently suspended from his team Orlando Pirates in August.

The allegations against Lorch became public after a Sunday newspaper published that his girlfriend opened a case on Sunday.

It is alleged that the player slapped the victim, sat on top of her and strangled her.

Gauteng Police Spokesperson Capt Kay Makhubele confirmed that a case of assault was opened against a 27-year-old man, and said the man was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning at his place of residence.

“It is reported that the suspect physically assaulted the complainant after a verbal exchange between the two, and the victim was allegedly rescued by the suspect’s friend who was present at the time of the incident that is related to domestic,” said Makhubele.
