    Son Saves Dad with Steak Knife During Attack

    Johannesburg - A young man from Roodepoort charged at one of his father's attackers on Tuesday night and stabbed him twice in the head with a steak knife, so hard that the blade broke off and stayed behind in the attacker's head.

    Ruan Vorster, 19, says his dad, 49-year-old Phillip, a mechanical engineer and a member of the Roodekrans Neighbourhood Watch, had just opened the gate of their house in Palala Street for someone he knew and with whom he had an appointment.

    While Vorster snr was waiting in the house for the man to arrive, he went outside at around 20:00 to fetch something from his Mercedes-Benz in the driveway.

    He was attacked in the hallway by three armed men when he went back into the house, Ruan said.

    Ruan and his 17-year-old brother, Hein, had both been on the phone in their respective bedrooms when they heard a noise in the hallway.

    “When I looked out of my room I saw the men hitting my father over the head with torches and firearms.

    "That's when I remembered about the steak knife next to my laptop.”

    He grabbed the knife and charged at one of the robbers, who was fighting with his dad in the master bedroom at this stage, hit the attacker from the side with his elbow and pushed him up against the wall.

    “I stabbed the knife into the top of his head twice with everything I had in me! But the knife's handle broke off,” he said.

    The robber fell to the floor, bleeding, with the knife blade still in his head, while the other two robbers and Vorster snr where still wrestling.

    Help

    Hein ran to the telephone where his friend, Joubert Schoeman, 17, with whom he'd been talking before the attack, was still holding on. “Oh hell (…) just help!” Hein screamed.

    Ruan went looking for more knives in his bedroom when he heard the shot.

    The bullet scraped Vorster snr's stomach and exited through his right thigh.

    Meanwhile, Joubert and his father Dirk, raced to the Vorster house after they had called the police.

    “When I heard that shot, I was convinced my dad was dead,” said Ruan.

    “The police were there within minutes, but by then the three robbers had already jumped into a white BMW and got away,” he said.

    Vorster snr says Ruan is his hero. “He saved my life and his brother's.”

    What happens to the son though? Isn't it illegal to defend yourself in your own house in South Africa?

    Yes, i don't know, hopefully he'll get of the hook on grounds of self defence. If he had used a firearm he definitely would have been in big trouble! But our legal system is so screwed up these days with criminals having more rights than the victims, you never know what might happen...

    It's because the government officials themselves are criminals.
