Nelson Mandela Bay clubbers have been warned to be on high alert when going out since the inception of attacks on nightclub patrons.

Times Live reports that this comes after a 38-year-old male was stabbed three times and robbed while walking to his car after leaving popular club Balizza in Port Elizabeth.

“As I got into my car and pushed the central locking‚ one person was [already] in the passenger seat‚ another one was behind me and one was at my door. They started stabbing and hitting me‚ and I just fought back," said the victim Ulrich Gerber to the site.

"They managed to steal my laptop‚ watch and clothes. I jumped out of the car to fight but could not breathe," he revealed to the publication.
