Special Report on attempted house robbery in Meerhof today 5th May 2017:
At 12.15 pm today a 49 year old female was confronted in her bedroom by a suspect carrying a pick axe, whilst she was getting dressed. The suspect threatened her and told her not to scream. Her husband was busy in the washing room outside and saw another suspect outside and became involved in a scuffle with him. The suspect in the house heard shouts from outside and fled towards the gate. One suspect was in a white Toyota Corolla with engine running outside the gate. The other two suspects jumped into the vehicle and fled the scene after the couple chased them. Nothing was stolen although the 52 year old husband was injured on his shoulder and leg during the scuffle, whilst his wife was hit in the face by the first suspect but not seriously injured.
