Man stabbed to death over missing cellphone


It is alleged that a 41-year-old male was stabbed recently, over missing boots in his shack. The victim confronted the suspect’s brother who was wearing his boots that were stolen in his shack. Infuriated, the suspect came and grabbed the victim at once, then stabbed him once in the upper body. The victim then ran with his stab wound until he fell in the bushes.  When paramedics arrived they certified him dead on the scene.


Community members teamed up for a citizen’s arrest and handed  the suspect to the police who then rescued him from an angry mob who decided to take the law into their own hands. He was taken away and will soon face the long arm of the law in the Johannesburg Magistrate Court.
