Armed robbers strike in Sunward Park, Comet Village

In a home invasion, robbers forced their way into a residential house on Totley Road, Sunward Park on November 4.

The victim told the police that she was in the study room at about 12.30am when she noticed unknown men, the intruders, coming towards her and instructed her to keep quiet.

They grabbed her by her hair and dragged her into the main bedroom. In the bedroom, there were two other robbers who held up her husband.

The couple was forced to open the safe.

Thereupon, the thugs ransacked the house, stealing goods including a TV set, notebook, two Blackberry cellphones, Alcatel cellphone, a watch, ID book, driver’s licence and cosmetics all worth about R26 700.

No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.
