Nico Stapelberg (38), a paramedic, was on his way home to Pretoria from Orania when he stopped at a shop. Four black men attacked and robbed him. One of the attackers then began stabbing Stapelberg with a sharp thin rod. After the attackers fled with his wallet, he managed to get back to his vehicle and attended to his wounds and put on his own drip, then phoned a nurse at Orania before managing to drive himself there for help.
He was then admitted to Kimberly hospital 3 hours later. This is the second time the paramedic has been attacked and injured.
