A 17 year old learner was stabbed in his back when four armed men attacked him on Wednesday afternoon.
The learner was a Grade 10 pupil at Waterloo Secondary School in KwaZuluNatal. The young man was stabbed at a railway line at around 15:20 pm.
The men allegedly approached the learners and asked for valuables. The men were holding okapi knives.
When they could not find any valuables they walked away only to return a few moments later to stab the learner who was walking behind in the group.
