Man stabbed to death over missing wine bottle

A man was stabbed to death after an argument over a two-litre bottle of Castelo wine in Windhoek on Friday, the police have reported.

According to a weekly crime report from the police, it is alleged that the deceased was stabbed with a knife while in the company of friends at a bar, after an argument erupted about a two-litre bottle of wine that was missing in the suspect’s taxi.

The police reported that the suspect was found with a knife and a screwdriver, while the deceased was lying on the back seat of the suspect’s vehicle, which was driven by a friend of the deceased who was attempting to take him to a hospital.

A police investigation is continuing.

In a separate incident, a 22-year-old man was found dead at Swakopmund on Saturday, after he had been stabbed with a sharp object once in the left thigh and twice in the back.

Police officers carrying out a routine patrol found the man’s body lying in a pool of blood, according to the police’s crime report.

In another incident, a 28-year-old man, identified as Kaen Amutenya, was found in a locked toilet in a house at Lüderitz with a fatal gunshot wound to his head on Friday.
A pistol and one spent cartridge were also found at the scene, the police reported.

The police are investigating the incident.

The police are also investigating two other suspected suicides, after a 37-year-old man allegedly ended his own life near the city’s Gammams Water Purification Plant on Saturday, and a 38-year-old man, Anthony Lisulo Mapenzi, was found dead at Okahao in the Omusati region on Friday.
