Johannesburg - Three teenagers were arrested after allegedly stabbing police officers at a stop and search operation in Ga-Sekgopo, Limpopo police said on Sunday.

Spokesperson Mohale Ramatseba said: "It is reported police were conducting a stop and search operation at Ga-Sekgopo at about 01:00 when they stopped the three boys who were walking drinking liquor."

A fight ensued after the boys - two aged 15 and one 18 - refused to be searched.

"A female officer was stabbed in the back and on the hand and a male officer was stabbed on the shoulder and also bit on [the] cheek," he said.

Two of the boys were shot in the leg.

All five were admitted to hospital and the police officers were discharged shortly afterwards.

Two of the teenagers remain in hospital under police guard and the third is in police custody.

The teenagers face charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, defeating the ends of justice and malicious damage to property for damaging the windscreen of a police vehicle.

      I am impressed that the managed to find police officers to begin with. Well done lads, I haven't seen one in Durban since the SWC.

      The charges should be attempted murder. Not assault.

    Why they shot them in the leg? SAPS should give officers that small gunlike device that fire electric darts,to use in this kind of situation

      TASER..........Works wonders

      Mike - 2011-12-04 14:06

      You are absolutely right Chimene, they shouldn't have shot them in the legs, it should have been head shots.

    SHows the terrible state of competence in our Police force. This would not have happened to competent officers.

    If someone stabs me i will shoot them in the face, they are trying to kill you, so kill them first. bloody rubbish.

      I hope that one doesn't have rabies.

    Should not have shot them in the legs. Dead boys tell no tales. And they did attack police officers, one of them a woman. Treat them as adults and give them to Bubba!

    But again, what self defence training did these cops do in their basic training, or did they skip that?

      werner.steenkamp1 - 2011-12-04 16:46

      No vmeiring1 they were sleeping while the training was done.
