The Herald (South Africa) - - News - Gareth Wil­son

Two firearms – a 303 hunt­ing rife and a shot­gun – and two tele­vi­sion sets were stolen dur­ing a rob­bery on a small­hold­ing in Addo on Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the at­tack hap­pened at about 12.30am while an 88-year-old woman and her 86-year-old brother were sleep­ing in the house.

By 6.30am, one of the sus­pects had been ar­rested in Addo and a stolen pis­tol re­cov­ered. The man is due to ap­pear in the Addo Magistrate’s Court on Mon­day. –
