AN elderly couple was
robbed and the male victim assaulted at their Settlers Park
home on Saturday night, the robbers escaping with about R40 000 worth of goods.
The robbery took place
at around 10.10pm while the couple was watching television.
Two armed burglars
managed to enter through the kitchen door that was closed but unlocked, and held
up the couple at gunpoint. The robbers allegedly wanted to tie them up but when
the male victim objected he was hit with the gun on his knee.
The thieves then helped
themselves to a substantial amount of foreign currency along with a Dell
laptop, two Apple I-pads, an Apple tablet, a mid-tablet, a Nokia cell phone and
a Sony digital camera.
