Johannesburg - A 17-year-old youth was arrested on Monday for a murder in Coffee Bay, Eastern Cape police said.

Major Zamukulungisa Jozana said the teenager was expected to appear in the Kwaaiman Periodical Court on Tuesday.

The boy was arrested after a 25-year-old man was stabbed to death at Xaba's tavern on Saturday.

"It's believed the teenager and the man had a quarrel after which the man was stabbed in his upper body. He died on the scene."

Meanwhile, another 25-year-old man was stabbed to death on Sunday by a 23-year-old in a fight at another tavern.

"The younger man was arrested and will appear in the Kwaaiman Periodical Court on Wednesday," Jozana said.
