A man was arrested and charged for the murder of a 35-year-old woman following an incident in Ottery Road in Wynberg.
Crime scene experts and local police are still on the scene combing the area for clues, according to a preliminary report by SAPS spokesperson FC Van Wyk.
Van Wyk said that Wynberg police are investigating a murder case after a stabbing incident on Thursday morning.
“A 35-year-old woman was stabbed and fatally wounded. A 39-year-old suspect, a foreign national, was arrested on a charge of murder.
“This incident also led to an accident involving another vehicle. All role players are still on the scene.”
A witness from the scene – who did not want to be identified – who accidentally drove into the back of the red car where the incident occurred spoke about the incident.
“I was approaching from Wynberg, going to Ottery, when the red vehicle in front of me all of a sudden slowed down and stopped dead in the road. I tried to avoid it and couldn’t, and then someone basically jumped out of the car.
“Once we investigated, we found the person inside the car had stabbed his partner in the car. The reason why the car had stopped is because he had stabbed her while she was driving.”
Western Cape EMS spokesperson Deanna Bessick said: “EMS received a call regarding an incident which occurred on Ottery Road at the M5 turn-off, in the direction of Ottery at 10:40 this morning.
“The call was reported as a Motor Vehicle Accident which involved two vehicles. Upon arrival, the paramedics found a woman who had been stabbed. Unfortunately, the patient was deceased when the paramedics arrived at the scene.
“We would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. The Forensic Pathology Services officials are currently at the scene,” Bessick said.
The City of Cape Town issued an alert which stated: “Crash on Prince George Dr and Ottery Road in Wynberg, Ottery Road eastbound closed. Make use of alternate route.”
