In the wake of this case, the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) of Rose Hill made four arrests, including three brothers. They were identified by a witness.

It was around 8:30 p.m. on Friday January 5 when a team of police officers from the Camp Levieux police station went to Avenue Prince Charles, Camp Levieux following a request. The officers discovered a man living in the Begonia block apartments of the NHDC, Camp Levieux lying on the road. He was bleeding from the mouth and right elbow.

The injured man, identified as Joseph Abel Danilo Joyeux, was rushed by police officers to Candos hospital. He was taken care of by Samu personnel, and a doctor had to certify that he had already given up the ghost. His body was then transferred to the hospital morgue for an autopsy. The autopsy, performed by Dr. Sudesh Kumar Gungadin, head of the police forensic department, attributed the cause of death to exsanguination.

Meanwhile, the site where his body was found on Avenue Prince Charles, Camp Levieux, has been secured as a crime scene. The Western Division CID led by Police Superintendent Seebaluck mounted an operation late on the evening of Friday January 5. The exercise led to the arrest of three brothers living on Avenue Plaisance, Rose Hill. They are Warren Cédric Ryan Paul, 23, Dylan Kenny Westley Paul, a 26-year-old bricklayer, Stephan Winsley Gary Paul, 31 and Davidsen Seehuny, a 20-year-old student attending a private college in Rose Hill, who also lives in Plaisance, Rose Hill. The victim was accused of stealing the cell phone of one of these four suspects.

A witness who incriminated them also identified them in the CID office. He stated that each of these suspects, armed with a saber, assaulted the victim. The four suspects were placed in cells at Coromandel police station, Quatre Bornes police station, Rose Hill police station and Moka detention centre respectively. On the morning of Saturday January 6, they were brought before the Bail and Remand Court in Port Louis on a provisional charge of murder. They were subsequently returned to their cells.
