An elderly retired medical specialist was robbed and stabbed on a Metrorail train on his way to Cape Town, outside Avondale this evening.

The male commuter who was on his way to do voluntary work at the soup kitchen in the CBD like he has done every Friday night in the last 20 years.

Fellow commuters called medical services and his family, because no management at CT station and they don’t have phones.


The victims brother has informed a page member that the victim has been admitted to hospital and is recovering.

“No one did anything everyone just stood there.. I was beyond shocked and horrified”, a page member wrote.
