An off-duty Delft police officer was stabbed to death in what appears to be a robbery in Kleinvlei, Cape Town on Sunday.

Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut confirmed that the Delft officer was murdered in the early hours of the morning.

“The 28-year-old constable stationed at Delft police station was leaving a shop in the area, accompanied by a friend, when he was stabbed to death during an apparent robbery by two unknown suspects who are yet to be arrested,” Traut said.

A murder case is under investigation.

The incident comes after two law enforcement officers were shot dead while protecting workers at a construction project in Philippi on Wednesday.
