Farm attack, armed attackers tie up residents, ransack home, St Francis Bay
A farm attack took place on the evening of Saturday, 15 May 2021, on a smallholding in Oyster Bay Road, St Francis Bay, in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. At least four suspects stormed into the smallholding at about 20:30.
The complainant was opening a kitchen door for the dogs, when she saw two men armed with firearms standing right in front of the door. One of the attackers fired a shot into the air and marshalled her back into the house, where she and her husband were held at gunpoint.
The two other attackers brought in a tenant from an outside cottage.
All three victims were held at gunpoint and also tied up with electric cables. The attackers then ransacked the home and stole jewellery and cell phones before fleeing the scene.
Moments later, the victims managed to free themselves and contacted the police. There were no serious injuries reported. At this stage, it is unknown whether a getaway vehicle was used.
A case of house robbery was opened for further investigation.
Police are urging anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects to contact the investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Marco Roscherr at 060 358 8906. The information may also be shared anonymously via Crime Stop at 08600 10111, and all information will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.
