“The resident was in the kitchen of his home in Reed Place when he suddenly noticed a man standing behind him. A fight broke out and the intruder stabbed him in the abdomen with a kitchen knife,” he said.

“The resident’s wife was still asleep but awoke to her husband’s screams for help and sounded the alarm. A Netcare 911 paramedic attended the scene of the crime,” he said.
