A 38 year old man has died after he was seriously injured while fighting off two suspects who broke into his Watsonia, Tongaat home during the early hours of Wednesday morning 22 April 2020.

Members of Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) responded to the residence on Knoll Place at approximately 04:29 and on arrival found the victim’s lifeless body in a pool of blood on the upstairs balcony.

His wife sustained a stab wound to her arm. She was treated by Medics for her injury but declined further medical attention.

It was established that two men had gained entry into the home. At some point during the break-in the suspects confronted the victims. The female victim was stabbed in the right arm. She managed to lock herself in one of the bedrooms with her 20 month old baby while her husband attempted to fight off their attackers.

During the scuffle the male victim was seriously injured. The suspects made off with two cellphones and a laptop.
