A 16-year-old youth was stabbed when he and his father were robbed at a dam near George, Western Cape police said on Thursday.

The teenager and his father, from Rustenburg, North West, were fishing at the dam on Wednesday when three men armed with knives approached them, Captain Bernadine Steyn said.

“The 16-year-old son was assaulted, during which he sustained a stab wound near his left eye.”

He was admitted to hospital, but had since been discharged. A cellphone, watch, keys, and two wallets were stolen.

The robbers slashed the tyres of their Ford Ranger before fleeing. No one had been arrested by 2pm on Thursday.
