Following the death of a woman who was stabbed to death, neighbours say they are in shock.

A group of women from Jackson Street in Bloekombos said they were shocked at their friend’s death on Monday evening.

A witness, who did not want to be named, said she came to the victim’s home when she heard the couple arguing.

The witness said “I arrived just as the argument between the two intensified. Before we could stop them, the husband picked up a knife on the braai stand, and rushed back towards his wife and stabbed her in the neck”.

“We spotted a police vehicle that was patrolling the area and called them to come help us. Within minutes, she was already dead”.

The victim’s family did not want to comment.

Police spokesperson FC Van Wyk, said “A 48-year-old suspect was arrested and detained at Kraaifontein SAPS on murder charges. He will appear in the Blue Downs Magistrate’s Court.”
