Elderly woman attacked

An elderly woman was hospitalised after being attacked by an intruder at her Somerset West home.

According to Sergeant Suzan Jantjies, spokesperson for Somerset West police, the incident occurred at 18:40 last Tuesday (23 October).

She said the 87-year-old woman was surprised by the intruder, who had gained entry to her Steynsrust home through the back door.

“She was overpowered and stabbed five times by the intruder, who managed to flee the scene with her gold watch and gold wedding ring,” Jantjies said.

“The suspect remains at large.”

The wounded pensioner was transported to a local private hospital for medical treatment, and was discharged on Tuesday 30 October.

Jantjies said police were investigating a case of house robbery.

She said anyone with information was urged to contact the investigating officer, detective WO Valton Lategan, on 021 850 1344.

The Somerset West Police Station Commander, Col Mary-Ann Williams, condemned the attack and implored residents to be alert to any suspicious-looking persons in their vicinity.
