A 24-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder of a woman in Bellville, Cape Town. 

Netwerk24 identified the woman as Lynette Volschenk. Volschenk's body was found in her apartment on Thursday. 

According to Netwerk24, neighbours heard noises coming from Volschenk's apartment on Wednesday evening. Concerned neighbours then went to investigate the next morning, only to find a suspect with blue gloves inside the apartment. 

Police were called to the scene after the shocking discovery was made.

Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said that the woman's body parts were found in a black bag inside her apartment.

"Police found black bags containing [the] body of the deceased cut in pieces."

The suspect arrested is believed to also be a resident in the same apartment block. 

Rwexana confirmed that the suspect is expected to appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court once charged.
