Cape Town - A 23-year-old Pietermaritzburg man was assaulted by community members after he was accused of stabbing a young child, paramedics said on Sunday.

The Imbali man was in a critical condition following the assault on Saturday, ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.

When paramedics arrived on scene, community members were hostile, and threatened them for treating him.

They accused the man of stabbing a child, who had already been transported to the hospital.

"Paramedics immediately loaded him into the ambulance and left the scene to continue care on route to hospital. Upon full assessment it was found that he sustained multiple stab wounds over his body as well as a fractured skull and face," Vermaak said.

Paramedics had to place the man on life support on route to hospital.
