Weekend Post (South Africa) - - News - Gareth Wil­son

A Ger­man man vis­it­ing Nel­son Man­dela Bay on a three-month work trip was robbed in a guest­house in Wyn­d­ham Street, South End, by three men who held him at knife­point and stole his rental car and be­long­ings.

The men en­tered the Madiba Bay Guest House at about 2am on Fri­day af­ter bend­ing open the se­cu­rity gate at the door and kick­ing the door open, po­lice spokesper­son Colonel Priscilla Naidu said.

The 53-year-old vic­tim was in the Bay on a work con­tract and had ar­rived on Wed­nes­day.

She said the man had been sleep­ing when he heard a bang.

Once in­side, the rob­bers re­strained the man and stole a lap­top and var­i­ous other items, which they loaded into his rental ve­hi­cle.

Af­ter the sus­pects fled in the car, the man raised the alarm.

Naidu said the ve­hi­cle had been found in New Brighton at about 2.30am and im­pounded.–
