FARM ATTACK - PAARL WESTERN CAPE: 5 Masked Suspects Attacked 3 Victims...

On Monday, 10 December 2018 at about 21h30, an elderly couple and their daughter were attacked and tied up on their farm on Lustigaan Road in the Paarl, Western Cape.

Five suspects, wearing balaclavas and armed with pangas and knifes entered the main farmhouse, tied up the 3 victims and began to ransack the entire house. The ordeal lasted for near an hour and a half.

Various items were taken including several Firearms. One victim was able to free herself minutes after the suspects left, and called the neighbour for help.

The neighbour, who is part of the farm watch, used the radio to alert the control centre who immediately alarmed all services.

The victims were severely traumatished during the ordeal. Police recovered some of the Firearms and investigations continue.
