A Bloemfontein man has been arrested for allegedly killing his six-year-old daughter and stabbing his two-year-old son.

Free State police spokesperson Colonel Thandi Mbambo said that police were called to the scene at Namibia Square, in Bloemfontein on Tuesday morning.

Upon arrival, police discovered the body of the six-year-old girl, as well as her two-year-old brother. The little girl died of stab wounds, while her brother was rushed to hospital for allegedly being stabbed.

The children's aunt went to look for them after she was informed by their grandmother that their dad had taken them and threatened to kill them.

The father was found in his shack and was arrested. He is expected to appear at the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court to face charges of murder and attempted murder.
