handcuffsSowetanLive reports that police have arrested a Bolt driver who allegedly stabbed two women in Table View, Cape Town, at the weekend following a dispute over their destination.

Western Cape police spokesperson Capt FC van Wyk said the man, aged 39, was arrested on Wednesday in Milnerton after the women, aged 21 and 20, opened a case on Tuesday. The suspect is expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Friday facing a charge of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. According to reports, Van Wyk said a group of friends arranged for a Bolt driver to pick them up in Monte Vista and drop them off in DuNoon (Milnerton). The driver wanted to drop them off at a fuel station near the entrance to DuNoon, as he said it was unsafe for him to go into DuNoon. Payment was made after money was withdrawn from an ATM. When the victims asked for change, the driver drove to Table View SAPS, where he was told to take the clients to their destination. The driver left the station with the passengers, but still didn’t take them to DuNoon. Van Wyk reported that an argument ensued which resulted in two women being stabbed. Bolt has since confirmed that it blocked the driver from the e-hailing platform while they investigate the allegations.
