Two men by the age of 18 and 21 were apprehended on Tuesday. The two men were apprehended as they were linked with the knife attacks that have been specifically aimed at learners from a high school in the Northern Cape. The learners were hurt in two different stabbing instances.
The instances both happened at a tuck shop that is across the Hartswater high school last week, according to Brigadier Mohale Ramatseba. In the first instance an 18-year-old learner got jabbed with a knife last week Tuesday. The second instance happened two days after. Last week Thursday, two 19-year-old learners were also jabbed with a knife at the same tuckshop as the 18-year-old learner.
According to Brigadier Mohale Ramatseba, the two learners were stabbed by two suspects. The both of them were apprehended by police officers from Hartwater and officials from Kimberley public order police on Tuesday. The police officials are looking at a case of attempted murder, assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm and common assault. They are soon set to be due in court, while officials continue with their examination.
