Die voorval het gebeur kort na die verdagte glo brood met ‘n trollie by die aflaaipunt van die winkel uit gestoot het.

Die oorledene, wat intussen as Rick Lovelock (59) deur die SAPS geidentifiseer is, het die verdagte gekonfronteer nadat hy glo sy voertuig met die trollie gekrap het.

Hy is op die toneel dood. Die verdagte het op die vlug geslaan na die moord en is steeds soek.
