A man was stabbed to death in his home in Kunene Park, Port Elizabeth, in an apparent robbery, Eastern Cape police said on Saturday.

Colonel Priscilla Naidu said the 66-year-old man, identified as Mark John Mullen, reportedly had a friend over a visit around 14:45 on Friday.

“Mullen’s wife arrived home at about 16:40 and found him lying on the floor. He sustained multiple stab wounds,” she said.

Mullen was wheelchair-bound due to the loss of a leg.

Entrance to the house was gained through the lounge window.
