Police arrested a 33-year-old woman who allegedly stabbed her neighbour in the face with a broken bottle in Site 5.

Table View police spokeswoman Captain Adriana Chandler said the two women had been arguing on Monday when the suspect had allegedly broken a bottle and lunged at her 31-year-old neighbour before fleeing.

The injured woman was taken to hospital.

Police traced the suspect using a description from witnesses.

Police arrested two men in Bothasig after finding tik on them, said Warrant Officer Jacques Mostert.

Neighbourhood watch members had reported seeing a suspicious car parked in Adam Tas Street on Friday.

Warrant Officer Mostert said officers had found two Bellville men, aged 28 and 29, in the car with tik and drug paraphernalia.

The car had been reported stolen in Goodwood the previous week.
