Elderly Scottburgh couple robbed

Robbery at Mpisini Nature Reserve

AN elderly couple from Scottburgh locked themselves in their bedroom to escape three men who had entered their house on Friday, September 28.

According to SAPS spokesperson, Captain Gerald Mfeka, three males, two armed with knives and another with a firearm, gained entry into the couple’s residence in a retirement complex.

“The 73-year-old complainant went to investigate after hearing a noise and managed to prevent one intruder from bending the burglar bars to gain entry. Another male, using a metal rod, smashed the patio door to gain entry to the house.

The couple then locked themselves in the bedroom, fearing for their safety,” said Capt Mfeka.

The men fled with a TV, cell ‘phone, cash and a laptop.

It is alleged that the men tied up the two security guards before entering the complex.

No arrests have been made. Constable Dillon Khamisa from Scottburgh Detective Service is investigating the burglary.
