Johannesburg - A four-year-old boy was stabbed to death during a quarrel between his parents in Nelson Mandela Park in Mthatha, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

Eastern Cape police spokesperson Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said the incident happened on Saturday night, when the child's parents were fighting.

"The father tried to stab the mother but she ducked," said Fatyela.

"The knife hit the boy... who was on his mother's back."

The boy died on the scene.

Fatyela said the father fled the scene but police were following leads which they hoped would lead to his arrest.

The mother was not injured.
