Woman dies after being stabbed

A woman from Petsana, Reitz, was allegedly stabbed and killed by her ex-partner on 27 November, following a domestic dispute.

The 35-year-old woman was declared dead on the scene after the suspect (33) stabbed her multiple times with a sharp object.

Their 4-year-old daughter was also stabbed and injured in the arm by her father. The child was briefly admitted to a hospital in Reitz where she received stitches and was later discharged. She is currently with her maternal relatives.

Members of the police were informed about the incident and swiftly responded. The suspect was traced at a hill near Petsana where he was arrested.

He was found in possession of a rope which the police suspected he intended to hang himself with. He will appear in the Reitz Magistrates Court soon for murder and attempted murder.

Acting Bethlehem Cluster Commander Brig. Nkaise Molefe is saddened by the incident and extends condolences to the family of Mokoena.

“I applaud members of the community for calling the police when they witnessed the stabbing,” Molefe said.
