Johannesburg - Two men were found dead, both with stab wounds, in Jouberton, North West police said on Sunday.

Captain Pelonomi Makau said paramedics found a 38-year-old man lying on the ground outside his home in extension 12, on Saturday morning.

"It is alleged that when the deceased arrived home from a tavern he started vomiting and ultimately fell on the ground and died."

He was found with minor stab wounds.

Another man, 45, was found lying on the street, in extension 16. He was killed by an unknown person, Makau said.

"Residents peeped through the windows when they heard a noise and saw somebody stabbing him and fleeing the scene at 02:00," said Makau.

She said police opened murder cases and investigations continue.
