A taxi driver was stabbed and robbed of his vehicle, allegedly by his two teenage passengers, in Goodwood, Cape Town, over the weekend.

"Shortly after a taxi driver was stabbed and robbed of his silver Renault Duster, our Flying Squad members arrested the two perpetrators. Yesterday afternoon the taxi driver was attacked in his vehicle by his two passengers in Goodwood," said police spokesperson Lt-Col Andrè Traut.

Traut said the duo, aged 17 and 19, fled in the vehicle towards Parow where Flying Squad members intercepted them in Fransie van Zyl Drive.  

The two were arrested on charges of attempted murder and possession of a stolen vehicle. They will appear in the Parow magistrate's court soon. 

In an unrelated incident, two suspects, aged 28 and 29, were arrested in Riebeeck Kasteel on Friday evening for being in possession of 2.8kg of dagga.

The suspects were apprehended during an intelligence-driven operation and will make a court appearance on Monday, according to Traut.
