Killed for refusing to share beer

2012-02-20 10:38

A man has been killed over a few sips of beer in Thabong in the Free State.

The police’s Sergeant Tlalanyane Pakela said the 20-year-old man refused when asked to share his beer at a tuck shop yesterday afternoon.

“He told the suspect to buy his own beer as he was not going to share with him.”

A 28-year-old man who had made the request pulled a knife and stabbed the beer drinker in the neck, who died on the scene.

The attacker was arrested and was expected to appear in the Welkom Magistrates Court tomorrow.
