Cape Town - A robber got a taste of his own knife when he was stabbed to death by an angry mob in Manenberg on Monday night.
Cops say the mob left Arnold Fortune, 36, for dead along the railway tracks behind the Caltex garage after stabbing him multiple times.
“It was about 7pm when the attack happened. It is believed that he was robbing people crossing the railway line between Manenberg and Gugulethu,” says a police source.
“There is a gaatjie (gap) in the palisade fence that people use as a shortcut and he allegedly robbed the people at knife point, but they got gatvol and moered him.
“They stabbed him lots of times in the chest and in the face using his own knife.”
