Three scholars are being sought by police in the Mandalay area after a 17 year old was stabbed and a security guard shot this morning.
Police spokesperson Inspector Ian Williams says it is alleged that the three schoolboys accosted the schoolboy on a train at the station where they stabbed him in his left upper arm and jumped out of the train.
“When a security guard saw them jump out of the train, he pursued them,” says Williams.
The scholars took out a firearm and fired several shots at the security guard, injuring him in his stomach.
Both the security guard and the 17 year old schoolboy are in a stable condition in hospital.
The suspects are still at large.
Anyone with information on the suspects whereabouts is requested to contact Mitchells Plain police station on (021) 370 1732 or Crime Stop at 08600 10111.
