A mother is in mourning after her only child was stabbed to death, allegedly by his ex-girlfriend’s berk whom she had just dumped.
Mom Allie Present, 42, says her son Brandon Present died just metres from their home in Villiersdorp.
“They say his killers attacked him from the back and when he turned around, they stabbed him in the neck.
“They also took the watch I gave him for his 19th birthday, and his cellphone,” says Allie.
Allie adds that three of Brandon’s teeth were loose and he had bruises in his face.
“Probably because of how they hit and kicked him,” says Allie.
The 22-year-old was on his way home from a party when three men attacked him. Police have arrested a suspect.
“The suspect dated Brandon’s ex and she dumped him,” Allie explains.
“He probably thought Brandon was dating her again and did this out of jealousy instead of talking things out.
“I feel heartbroken. He was my only child and I raised him on my own,” says Allie.
Constable Noloyiso Rwexana says cops were called to the scene at Mountain Hill, Villiersdorp, on Sunday morning at about 1.45am.
“Police attended the complaint and found the deceased lying on the ground,” says Rwexana.
A suspect appeared in the Caledon Magistrates’ court yesterday.
