A hero dad has saved the life of his son from knife-wielding robbers by allegedly killing one of the attackers.
The 44-year-old dad, who has a black belt in karate, put his fighting skills to use when the two skelms tried to take his 18-year-old son’s cellphone.
The father and son both sustained stab wounds.
On Thursday, the two had gone to Liberty Promenade Mall to buy takkies and took a taxi home to Colorado Park, Mitchells Plain.
They had just gotten out of the taxi on the corner of Casino and Bond streets when they were attacked.
The takkies were meant for the boy’s trip to the United Kingdom this week, where he was to participate in soccer trials for Manchester City and other clubs.
The boy’s mother asked for their identities to be protected for safety reasons.
