Fifty-one-year-old Ben Tuzee, co-owner of popular Glencairn eatery – Dixies, was attacked and killed in Browns Farm, Philippi last Tuesday, MSN reports.

Police say Tuzee and his niece were lured to the area after advertising a television for sale on social media.

“[They] were requested by a potential buyer to make the delivery at Msenge Street at around 09:45. Upon their arrival at the agreed location, the victim and his niece came under attack by three suspects, who fled with his vehicle after he sustained a fatal stab wound,” said SAPS in a statement.

They added that Mr Tuzee’s murder is not being regarded as an isolated incident.

“We are aware of more incidents where victims who made use of social media platforms to advertise items fell victim after they were requested to make the delivery to areas in Nyanga such as Browns Farm and Crossroads.”
