East London - A 27-year old man allegedly stabbed his sickly mother to death in East London at the weekend, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

"The man went to visit his mother at a facility for chronic illness at about 12:00 [on Sunday] afternoon when he was arrested," Captain Mluleki Mbi said.

Mbi said the nurses were serving lunch when they found the 59-year old woman with stab wounds to her neck and stomach.

After a search, the suspect was found hiding in the facility's toilets.

The man is expected to appear before the East London Magistrate's Court soon.
