The Herald (South Africa) - - News - Times­LIVE

Po­lice are search­ing for a gang that at­tacked a farmer‚ his son and two of his work­ers near Glück­stadt in KwaZu­luNatal on Tues­day.

Po­lice spokesper­son Nkosie Gwala said the four had been busy tend­ing cat­tle on Uitzig farm when they were ap­proached by men who feigned in­ter­est in buy­ing live­stock.

“The gang drew firearms, or­dered the vic­tims to lie down and tied them up while as­sault­ing them with the butts of their firearms‚” Gwala said.

“The gang stole R10‚500 cash‚ two cell­phones‚ as well as a ri­fle and am­mu­ni­tion.”

Gwala said that the farmer’s son was se­ri­ously wounded when one of the men stabbed him. –
