Hemel and Aarde House Robbery
It is alleged that while they were in the house four male suspects came through the window and threatened them with a fire-arm and tied them up. The suspects demanded cell phones, undisclosed cash, pension cards and bank cards. They fled with the complainant’s vehicle, a red Polo Classic. The victims are not injured.
The suspects had an accident in the Hemel and Aarde Valley. Two suspects were seriously injured and the other two fled the accident scene.
Two suspects, aged 30 and 23 years, were arrested and taken to hospital for medical treatment. One of the suspects was discharged and one is still in a critical condition. The vehicle and one cell phone has been recovered by the police.
The police are still looking for the other two suspects who are still at large.
The arrested suspects will appear in Hermanus Magistrate Court on Friday and they face charges of house robbery and theft of motor vehicle.
