A MAN (31) was fatally stabbed on Sunday (13/03), allegedly by a friend after they had quarrelled over a woman.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Yanga Ngcukana said the deceased, Kamohelo Pheko, had been stabbed in the chest with a knife.

The knife has since been confiscated as part of the evidence.

According to Ngcukana, the incident happened on Sunday at about 16:00 at Mandela Square, Dewetsdorp. It is alleged that the duo were fighting in the street over a woman when the suspect pulled out a knife and allegedly stabbed the victim once in the chest. The man died on the scene. The 23-year-old suspect ran away, but was later apprehended by police with the assistance of the community.

He is expected to appear in the Dewetsdorp Magistrate’s Court this week on a charge of murder.
