Woman stabbed multiple times still unidentified
Gauteng police are still trying to identify the body of the woman found in Bryanston over the weekend. A case of murder has been opened but no arrests have been made so far.
“We can confirm that the woman was of Indian descent and dark in complexion with long hair,” said police Captain Tsekiso Mofokeng.
ER24 spokesperson, Werner Vermaak, said that a passer-by had noticed the woman lying outside a building at around 17h00 on Saturday before alerting paramedics.
“It is understood that another woman and her child were driving along Peter Place when the child noticed [the woman] lying near a boom gate at an office park,” News24 quotes Vermaak as saying.
“Paramedics found the injured woman barely responsive and breathing. They indicated that she [the victim] had lost a vast amount of blood and counted approximately 50 stab wounds on her body”. The woman, believed to be in her late thirties, was rushed to the Sandton Mediclinic, where she later died.
Mofokeng has urged members of the public with any possible information, to assist police with the investigation
