The Herald (South Africa) - - NEWS - Bobby Jor­dan

SUE DU­MINY‚ the wife of cricket star JP Du­miny‚ has joined the na­tional cho­rus against crime‚ af­ter she and her 85-year-old grand­mother were mugged on Thurs­day last week.

On Fri­day‚ Du­miny de­scribed her or­deal in a Face­book post.

She said she was ac­com­pa­ny­ing her grand­mother to fetch medicine from a Parow clinic‚ when they were at­tacked by a young­ster who tar­geted her mother’s necklace.

“A young boy pulled and tugged a chain off her neck‚ while my poor 85-year-old granny was walk­ing with her walk­ing ring‚” Du­miny wrote.

“Ouma’s arm got fractured in the process.”

“I re­ally do try to stay pos­i­tive about our beau­ti­ful coun­try‚ but yes­ter­day was just a mas­sive wake-up call [about] what [a] ‘war’ we are ac­tu­ally liv­ing in.”

The post prompted sev­eral com­ments‚ among them one from Claudelle Adams. “Dis­gust­ing be­hav­iour‚ but it is hap­pen­ing all over.”

The post ap­peared on the Crime In­tel­li­gence and Com­mu­nity Aware­ness Face­book site‚ where mem­bers can share crime tips and ex­pe­ri­ences.
