A cyclist is recovering after an attack at a known hotspot that left him scrambling to seek medical help – with a knife lodged deep in his head.
Shaun Wayne was cycling to work at a restaurant on Monday at the Strand in the Western Cape when he was attacked and stabbed on Gordon’s Bay Drive.
Former world champion cyclist Wimpie van der Merwe wrote on Facebook on Tuesday that the man was attacked in the same spot that he was attacked last week.
“Yesterday afternoon, at exactly the same place where we were attacked last week on Gordon’s Bay Road, another person (Shaun Wayne, a waiter at a local restaurant) was almost fatally attacked on his bike! The police and policing are shining in their in absence.”
