Two questioned after fatal stabbing of CT teen
A 17-year-old Mondale High School learner was stabbed in the chest on Tuesday.
CAPE TOWN - It's not yet clear whether two people of interest in the murder of a Mitchells Plain pupil will be arrested.
A 17-year-old Mondale High School learner was stabbed in the chest while walking home from school in Portlands on Tuesday afternoon.
A 30-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman have since been taken in for questioning.
The police's Frederick Van Wyk says the victim later died in hospital.
"We've opened a murder case for further investigations. Circumstances surrounding that incident are still not known at this stage."
This is the third incident of its kind to be reported to police over the past few days.
In George earlier this week, a 12-year-old boy allegedly stabbed to death by a 14 year-old boy during an argument.
Last Friday, a grade 12 learner was fatally stabbed in the chest by a 20-year-old pupil outside Oaklands High in Lansdowne.
