A 53-year-old woman has allegedly been attacked by three armed men in Level Street, Wentworth Park last night at around 22:30.
Gert Jonker, Community Policing Forum (CPF) chairperson for Krugersdorp confirmed this with the Voice and said a neighbour realised something was amiss.
“He immediately called for assistance on the CPF-radio. The CPF together with the South African Police Services swiftly made their way to the scene where they found the woman tied-up.”
Jonker said the woman, who was staying alone at the time of the incident, also received the required medical attention.
“Unfortunately we have no clear description of the perpetrators, but we suspect that they have fled in a dark blue Hyundai Getz.”
Jonker said it is unclear what have been taken as the woman was too shocked to elaborate.
Rumours that a domestic cat was also taken by the robbers, who had rung its neck before throwing it into the street as the fled the scene, could not be confirmed.
