Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Or­rin Singh

MTUBATUBA po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a case of house rob­bery fol­low­ing a farm at­tack in Monzi on Thurs­day night.

At the time of the rob­bery, only the farm owner’s wife and daugh­ter were at home.

Re­ports in­di­cate that three sus­pects gained en­trance into the yard by dig­ging an open­ing un­der­neath the fence.

The sus­pects are be­lieved to have tied up the gar­den worker and forced him into the house, where they pro­ceeded to as­sault the farm owner’s wife, her nineyear-old daugh­ter and the do­mes­tic work­ers.

The per­pe­tra­tors de­manded the keys to the safe, from which they took firearms and am­mu­ni­tion be­fore flee­ing from the scene.

A source in­di­cated that two hunt­ing ri­fles, a shot­gun and a 10mm Glock were taken dur­ing the rob­bery.

Mtubatuba SAPS Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer, Cap­tain Jus­tice Hlabisa, con­firmed the in­ci­dent and said they are on the hunt for the sus­pects.

‘We ap­peal to any mem­bers of the pub­lic who may have in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this case to con­tact
