Cape Town - A man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly stabbing a man to death in Thembalethu near George, Western Cape police said.

The 21-year-old allegedly killed Ayanda Wanner, 19, in the early hours of Christmas Day last year, Captain Bernadine Steyn said.

He apparently had an argument with Wanner at a bar.

Wanner and his friend then left the bar and while they were walking home, the alleged killer and his friends approached them on Sandkraal Road.

The two men started arguing again and the 21-year-old took out a knife and allegedly stabbed Wanner once in the left side of his chest.

Wanner was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died on New Year's eve.

The man would appear in the George Magistrate's Court soon.
