It is understood that the victim who drove a navy blue Toyota Corolla went out to fetch her children. As she got back into her car, someone came and knocked on her  window and told her that her left front tyre was flat. She got out of her vehicle to check the tyre,  while she checked, the robbers took her cellphone and ran away.

Having realised that she was duped the woman screamed for help. A security guard managed to apprehend one of the suspects.

His accomplice is still at large with the woman’s cell phone.

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.
