Johannesburg - A woman was stabbed to death by her ex-boyfriend in Mmakau village in the North West, police said on Monday.

The man allegedly went to his 35-year-old ex-girlfriend's house on Sunday morning, confronted her and started stabbing her on the chest without uttering a word, said Lieutenant Colonel Lesego Metsi.

"Community members went to the house after hearing the woman's screams for help. They then started assaulting the man," said Metsi.

She was certified dead on the scene. The man was treated at Brits hospital under police guard before being detained at the Mmakau police station.

He would appear in the Garankuwa Magistrate's Court on Tuesday on a charge of murder.
