Police and security personnel were alerted to a bloody crime scene near Northcliff.
The stabbing took place at about 1pm on 28 November in Botha Street, Waterval Estate, just a street away from the Naidoo family murder/ kidnapping home.
When Northcliff Melville Times was at the scene, the injured man had already been transported to a hospital and the man suspected of his stabbing was in the back of a police van, still at the scene.
SCP Security director, Clive Maher, told Northcliff Melville Times that he had been on the scene at a cottage in the backyard of a Botha Street home, just after the incident happened and described it as bloody.
Maher saw two unfamiliar shrines in the man’s home and wondered which religion the victim practiced and whether it had something to do with the attack. He speculated that Satanism may in some way have been related to the incident, but could not prove this.
He added that the suspected stabber was a doctor who had allegedly stabbed the victim as a warning. According to Maher, the alleged stabber believed that the victim had caused harm to his family by cursing them in a supernatural way.
He added that the doctor was a schizophrenic who failed to take his medication.
According to Maher the victim was stabbed in the stomach, throat, arm and chest and was treated on the scene by ER24 and Netcare911 emergency medical personnel before being transported to a hospital.
The suspected stabber also sustained an injury to his head. It is alleged that the victim may have hit him over the head with a sword.
Northcliff Melville Times contacted the Sophiatown Police Station to confirm the information gathered on-scene, however, Warrant Officer TJ de Bruyn explained that only once a case is registered at the station can he comment on the matter.
This is a developing story and more information will be published as it becomes available.
