A heated argument between two workers on a Glen Ashley premises resulted in the fatal stabbing of one of them and the arrest of the other earlier this evening.
At approximately 18h30 the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre received a call from a client in Doreen Crescent that two workers on his premises had gotten into an altercation and that one of them had stabbed the other with a knife.
Multiple Armed Response Officers and members of our Special Operations Team were immediately dispatched to assist and arrived on scene within minutes. Upon their arrival it was determined that the victim had sustained stab wounds to his arm and chest, the latter which had pierced his heart and sadly resulted in his death before paramedics could arrive on scene.
The worker responsible for the stabbing was still on scene and was immediately arrested, and the murder weapon was also recovered. The crime scene was cordoned off by our team members on scene.
The Durban North SAPS were notified and arrived on scene shortly thereafter. The suspect was taken to the Durban North police station where he will be charged with murder.
Our condolences to family members of the deceased victim.
