Seven men, teen held for stabbing

Seven men and a boy of 14 were arrested for allegedly stabbing a man to death in Uitenhage yesterday.

Jacques Jansen, 20, was stabbed several times while walking home with a friend, Captain Gerda Swart said.

“Jansen and a friend were walking home through an open field next to Kamesh Road when they were confronted by a group who allegedly robbed them of their belongings.

“They stabbed Jansen several times before fleeing,” Swart said.

The suspects were arrested in Joe Slovo hours after the stabbing. They are due to appear in court in Uitenhage tomorrow.
