CAPE TOWN - A Metrorail security guard remains under observation in hospital after he was stabbed during a scuffle with a trader at Cape Town Station.

Guards were trying to remove illegal traders for the station platform when the incident occurred.

Metrorail's Mthuthuzeli Swartz said the traders then refused to move to designated spots above the station deck.

"They insist on being on the trains and platforms."
