JP Duminy’s wife mugged
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.
