The carnage in the city began as early as nine a.m. on Wednesday. On Faber’s Road Extension, violence erupted between two rival groups in the area and ended with the stabbing death of Marcus Frazier. Police say that Frazier and Kyle Saunders attacked a man at a shop. But the individual pulled out a knife and stabbed both attackers. Frazier died at the K.H.M.H. while Saunders is in a stable condition.

“Police visited the K.H.M.H. where they observed two male persons suffering from stab wounds to their bodies. The first male person was identified as Marcus Frazier, twenty-four-years-old and Kyle Saunders twenty-two-years-old. What police gather so far is that both male persons were at a store located on Faber’s Road Extension where they had an argument with another male person who had just arrived at the store. As result the two male persons that were injured attacked the male person who was inside of the store and thereafter a fight ensued where the person who was inside the store inflicted stab wounds to the two persons at the hospital.”

 

But what could have motivated Frazier and Saunders attack the person with a glass bottle and cement block?

“We understand that it is an ongoing rivalry between two groups at the Faber’s Road Extension and that there was exchange of words prior to the incident happening. That was whilst the suspect was arriving on his motorcycle at the shop and the two guys were across the street. There, they had an exchange of words.”

 

Police say that they believe that the target, who is currently being sought by investigators, acted in self defence. So will charges be levied against Saunders who was one of two persons involved in the incident?

“At this moment, he is admitted in a stable condition. Police has interviewed him, he has given certain information; however we are following other information that we have. And as routine, we will compile a file and that file will be sent to the D.P.P.’s office for advice.”
