A man was allegedly stabbed after an altercation on Camps Bay beach at 6.10pm on Monday. That’s two days after the fatal stabbing of a UCT student on Clifton’s 3rd Beach.
According to police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk a passer-by tried to intervene in the altercation between three youths aged 15 and 16, but was hit over the head with a brick.
Beaches seems to be a new hotbed for crime as this is the second stabbing in less than a week.
Ward 54 councillor Nicola Jowell said on social media a young man was approached by a man who tried to steal his phone.
According to IOL , the second injury occurred a short while later when Law Enforcement and SAPS were on the scene. A passing motorist stopped and confronted the group of youths. One of the youth threw a brick at this man and he was injured by this attack.
This person was arrested by SAPS but the initial robbery and stabbing suspect has not yet been arrested.
According to reports, yesterday afternoon at about 18:10 an altercation between three youths aged 15 and 16 (from Bloekombos) occurred, a passer-by tried to intervene and was hit over the head with a brick.
