2016-06-07 06:00

A 45-year-old man was stabbed in the left leg and arm while fighting a woman.

It is alleged that the victim and a woman were in an argument in their house in Parkin Court, Lavender Hill. Fighting ensued and the man picked up a knife, intending to stab thewoman. She instead allegedly used the knife to stab the man.

The victim was transported to Retreat Day Hospital for medical treatment.

On Thursday 26 May the victim started to bleed again, but because the day hospital was closed due to sporadic shooting, he stayed at home. On Friday morning an ambulance was called to transport the victim to Victoria Hospital. On Saturday 28 May he died.

Steenberg police are waiting on the autopsy report to determine the cause of death. An inquest docket has been opened.

V Anyone with information is requested to contact Steenberg police at 021 702 9000.
