Cape Town – A group of five who stabbed and wounded officers at a lodge in Hout Bay has yet to be arrested, Western Cape police said on Saturday.

The two officers, from the Eastern Cape, were also robbed of their phones, laptops and police IDs during the attack on Thursday night, said Constable Noloyiso Rwexana.

She said the warrant officer, stationed in Port Elizabeth, was stabbed in the neck and chest.

A captain from Burgersdorp was stabbed in his head.

Rwexana said attempted murder and business robbery were being investigated.
