Domestic workers are warned not to trust anyone who claims to have been sent by their employer after bogus Municipality workers robbed a house in Naudeville of valuable items.
On the 21 December 2022 at about 11:32 a 51-year-old female domestic worker was allegedly busy with house chores when she heard a knock at the gate.
Upon checking she was confronted by three African males who claimed to be from Matjhabeng Municipality coming to check the water meter reading, as per request of her employer.
She allegedly refused to allow them entry but they insisted until she decided to open the gate for them.
She was overpowered and forced inside the house. Her head was covered with a blanket and she was tied up while lying on the floor.
She managed to untie herself and informed her employer.
Two wrist watches, Gucci perfume, Versace perfume, Gucci ladies perfume and a remote control were stolen.
The three suspects were wearing blue jeans, blue top overalls, with green reflector jackets and their faces were covered with face masks. A case of House Robbery was registered for further investigation.
Anyone with information that can assist in tracing the suspects, Captain Yolanda Hulme of Welkom Serious and Violent Crimes can be contacted at 082 493 1204 or Crime Stop number 08600 10111.
