A MAN was stabbed to death near the Pinetown taxi rank while trying to protect his wife from an assailant, police told The Witness yesterday.

Joseph Khomo (48) was running towards his wife when he was stabbed in the stomach.

Captain Thulani Zwane said that on Wednesday, Khomo’s wife allegedly got into an

argument with an unknown man who stabbed her in the left arm.

Paramedics and witnesses at the scene said the woman was being robbed and screamed for her husband’s help.

He was stabbed in the stomach with a stick, said Zwane.

He died at the scene despite the efforts of paramedics.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said the woman sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital.

Police are investigating, but have made no arrest.
